It is an unfortunate fact the we have not taken good care of the land that has been placed in our guardianship. Hopefully, it is not too late.

    Metaphor For The Cycle Of Life

    Once a tree spoke to me in words of color and grace.

    Poem About The Beauty Of Alaska

    I know a place where the tall cotton grass blooms and blows,
