      DIVERSIONS


      Diversions of roots

           converging in the trunk

           Something pulling ever higher

      Diversions of branches diverted 

           even more by the needles


      Once redwood forests

           covered vast territories

      Now their range is limited

           to the coastal mountains 

           of Northern California


      Dinosaur sized trees left over 

           from a dinosaur world

           Their crowns are ecosystems

      Here saplings once sprouted into

           such lives of incredible vastness


      Walking away our vistas

           have been stretched

      We are wilder

           & yet more civilized

           than we used to think
