el·e·phant, n. A heavy plant-eating mammal with a prehensile trunk, long curved ivory tusks, and large ears,..


They’re beautiful…

Even with their wrinkles.

Sitting in the Africa bush,

I witness

A memory* of elephants

parade by

Bulky legs lumbering,

Gargantuan ears flapping in the wind,

and trunks ensnaring each other’s tails.

Years of wisdom

Are sketched into the

Crevices of their skin

Carry on, majestic giantesses.

Here is a wordle dedicated to the Queens of the Jungle.


Mark your calendars! September 22 is Elephant Appreciation Day!
