Redwood Trees

redwood trees are still in winter
their old rings run from root to top,
as long as I have lived here near them
it does not seem their growth has stopped.

mine has come and gone in spurts.
i stop and groan, and stop some more.
maybe the soil where i’ve been planted
needs feeding from the amendment store.
