Chip Kosty and I squeezed in a quick camping trip to Sequoia in June. We hiked, cooked and , of course, visited the big trees. I spent some time sitting on a bench, taking the place in and some good words came to me. I shared them with editor Jayne Jaudon and she shared them on Your Daily Poem. Here’s the link:

An old friend passed away some years back. She was born into a South County pioneer family and, though a world traveler and Berkeley educated, her deepest affection was for her ranch and all the rural folks who make their living from a none too gentle land. I tried to show a little bit of that in this poem. I thank editor Jayne Jaudon Ferrer for including it on her excellent poetry page!
