He then went back to eating his tree.


And the moral of this story is????

The Big Elephant
 
Munching still
Upon the branches of
An agreeable tree.

The Big Elephant hears
A quiet voice speak
She raises her head then.

She recognizes
A soft voice that beckons
And she moves on.

She moves on
Solid in her movements
Yet open to what she will find.

Love, Deb

"She moves on

Yet open to what she will find.

An ancient inkling;
a familiar surrounding.
The Elephant winks.

This is so funny.
I was so awed by what you just wrote
And then I just happened to look to my post and found
You were quoting meeeeee!!!!

Isn't that a hoot?

I heard it and felt it much better from you, go figure.

Love it, Deb
