Redwood Creature

In a redwood I sit and connect

Approaching this great creature with respect

Honoring the time on Earth spent

Reflecting on how it reaches for fulfillment

Ever reaching for the sky

Striving, climbing, no need to fly

Firmly planted

Deep diving roots

One with Earth

The living proof

Provided for in every way

Content to wait and grow and stay

No ambitions other than growth

Focused on purpose

No loss hope

Providing shelter, comfort and food

Just by doing what it’s supposed to

Not going out of its way

Just doing what it was made to do

Providing just by being

Just as we should do
