~ Rock the Cradle (Slouching Towards San Francisco)

beyond the ken

of yeats’ widening gyre

indifferent to all

but lightning’s fiery ire:

sequoia sempervirens.


embraced by infinite silence

(generations come into

& pass out of existence)

is it the second coming,

or merely the first,

to which they aspire?


a meditation upon

“the second coming,”

by william butler yeats


amid the redwoods

of humboldt county,

northern california

while on a recent trip

down highway 1

to san Francisco
