come to the redwoods
         return to the redwoods
relentless roars from northern california
          listen          to ruby colored voices
                                                 murmuring whispers
                                  in the background of our ears
                                               an insistent humming
                                                    strophic songs
                                               circling our brains
                                                    melting heart edges

come to the redwoods
                      return to the redwoods
                                            remember the redwoods
we can't resist the call
                        when we arrive
                                  we wonder why we left
                                  we are dressed in silence
we are enveloped by ancient arms
                        remembering back through ice ages
knowing we are part of the universe
               we are             the universe
               we        have                         always been here
                 each           and all of us
moving       around    the circumference   of      endless
