Elephant Thoughts

It must be nice to walk without a lot of weight

Must be calming to have others observe your gait

Must be intriguing to lie down without the stomach taking much space

Must be empowering to blow the nose without water spewing in your face.

When I return after my life is through,

Possibly as a sparrow or a mule, I will fly, screeching sighs, or stubbornly and anxiously carry

multitudes of lies, Or maybe I will simply return as a tree, roots embedded to generations of

yore, spirits of degradation, Whispering, “They owe you more!’”

I am an elephant and walk with the gait of a queen, experience not to be denied, wisdom

revealed as in the eyes of an owl, and on the falcon’s wing.
