Preventive Medicine 2

Is it time again
for a dose of Redwoods?

Do I need to stand deep
in a grove of giants
and breathe myself small,
smaller, until I can
feel awe again,
until the breath…
         the slightest breath
of glory leakng
through the callused
skin, the rough bark,
of the world
makes me shiver?

Makes me sing above
the silence
like the wind so
high in the Redwood tops?
