"Black Rain" - Redwood Trees Reaching Toward the Sky"Black Rain" - Redwood Trees Reaching Toward the SkyA black and white photo of California Redwood trees reaching dramatically toward the light of the sky. A beautiful and a haunting photograph.

so what if trees reach?
like us,
they have a need
to write poetry on the paper sky.

does it not hurt?
to think of the sky
—which holds us
in and
keeps us
together—-

crumbled
and wrung out

leaking our poetry
into a black rain 
that keeps washing us
away?
