Dialogue between Mountains and Trees

I just posted a YouTube of this poem yesterday.  In this YouTube Carol Pearce Bjorlie is reading the poem aloud and I matched photographs of trees and mountains, beech trees and rhododendrons, stream beds and mosses to her narration.  I love the way Carol imagines a conversation between these parts of the natural world.
