letters from the forest

The giant drift logs arrived and stayed.

In Rialto Beach they created a spectacle.

They travelled for miles, some for more than a hundred years.

The sea played with them, toys of the ocean, accompanying their journey to safe havens.

They were tenacious travellers.

The logs were bleached but they could be red cedar, birch, maple, cottonwood,alders, and perhaps other species.

Were they letters the forest sent to us?

Read and study them.

Learn the ecosystem, how nature behaves.

Could they teach us about life?
