Part of my Bible Seeds Page on my website, has poems that I’ve written and this one is set in Sequoia National Park.
This place was introduced to me by my wife Mary, who is the mother of my four children and the woman of my heart.
I heard about the Redwoods before but I never
I wrote this poem from that trip.
( by Carl Vasta )
I was walking in the land of giants, not forest green, but red.
I was feeling sad and lonely, Someone told me you were dead.
I came to see the big red trees that had lived from long ago, and maybe in their presence, I would find out what they know.
These massive souls with roots so shallow grasping to the sod, were some how being balanced by the loving hand of GOD.
I saw some struck by lightning, others broken on the ground, and all around the redwood tombs, new life was abound.
GOD made a promise to the "red" that they would never die, and be the giants of the world, ever trying to reach the sky.
All they did was to believe, strong and faithful these, and the only ones that ever died were the non-believing trees.
I feel your presence here with me as we walk along. I feel your spirit loving me and I know you're living on.
Your new life has found in me a reason not to cry, but like the giants of this world, keep trying to reach the sky.... and
All they did was to believe strong and faithful these, and the only ones that ever died were the non-believing trees.
