Tides and Trees

Tides and Trees

The beauty of Brookings was palpable.

Forested cliffs

Sea stacks replete with avian life

And framed by frothy waves.

A city of flowers surprised us with winter blooms of all colors 

and a reprieve from the rain.

Afternoons at the library provided

friends, art projects, wi-fi for work and school,

and a glimpse of a Samurai Sword.

Day trips across the state line

took us into the forests of giants

where time seems to slow

and silence is weighted with

the wisdom of the ages,

and centuries of sylvan growth.

Our breath hung in the frozen air

when we reached the end of the historic stagecoach trail

and clambered out to get closer,

To touch time

and feel the immensity of

something far bigger than ourselves.

Hearts brimming with the fullness of these days,

We returned to our little home 

For a dinner meal & Advent lights.

On the last day of our week in Brookings,

After missing low tide each day,

We descended the cliffs 

To discover

A wonderland of tidepools,

some iced over at the edges from the cold,

And ocean treasures,

unearthed and gloriously within reach,

Inviting us

To gawk and touch and dance and see

Riotous beauty

Clinging in silence without complaint,

Delivering an eloquent discourse on community and hope.

"When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you until it seems that you could not hold on for a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time when the tide will turn."

-Harriet Beecher Stowe
