what goes on

What goes on inside an elephant’s head
Do  they look at their world with fear and dread?
Do they see each day as another chance to live
Are they short on grudges, and long on forgive?
Do they revel in their planet and its natural wealth
Do they understand the importance of their homeland’s health
Do they go about their lives, day by day
In quiet reverence, with not much to say
We can barely understand each other
Perhaps we can learn from our
Elephant sisters and brothers
If we open our hearts and eyes
We might just  be pleasantly  surprised

About Me

My photo
greetings! i have managed to incorporate my eternal woodstock nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga...waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. sketching, watercolor painting,poetry and photography are my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance.
