|You expressed your "lump" suberbly! Its an awesome feeling, one that is very difficult to find words to describe...but you managed it!
I will always be intrigued by nature~
Love and Peace~

You superbly reflected "the lump in your throat" in this rich and gripping write..this immediately reminded me of Ezekiel 31:18: "To whom art thou, thus like, in glory and in greatness among the trees of Eden?"
All mankind should be in awe..
Beautifully and masterfully done.

|This truly is a most awed and awe-inspiring poem, Butch... we can tell that you have been greatly moved to the depths to reach expression for this one. And I can only marvel with you... In England I guess everything is such small scale... I'm not sure whether I can believe my eyes when I grapple with my perceived proportions in that picture! Yes, it is like Gulliver in Lilliput, being a sapling, I guess! LOL Kate xx|

|Butch the pic was astonding I have never seen such a large mammoth tree. Your tribute left a lump in my throat too. In the Woprd it speaks of faith being like a seed so this held a spiritual teaching in your poetry for me.
Blessings & Light,

|Words as strong as the very roots you write about, Butch. Wow, this is as much a study in the tree giant as it is in sounds when read aloud...such power. This is a delight to the eye and the ears...

|Reviewed by Joyce Bowling
|What a wonderful write my friend, your words are heartfelt and sincere! The picture is stunning, I've wanted to visit the park and see them for myself since I was a small girl and read about them at school! Maybe someday I'll get a chance to, but for now you've given a wonderful vision with your poem and a glimpse of the wonderous trees with this beautiful picture! Enjoyed this so very much!
Blessings from Kentucky,

|Thriving within nature’s nursery
They are metaphors of hope
And how truly magnificent they are! Love the poem, the pic, and that Thoreau quote, Butch.
|Reviewed by Katherine Chandler
|"Thriving within nature’s nursery
They are metaphors of hope
Living representatives of God’s glory
Patiently awaiting their time in the sun"
These lines truly spoke to me, Butch. I
have always dreamed of going to Yosemite
National Park and the imagery in this poem
makes me want to go there even more now!!
