Pink Elephants....
 
1 Attachment(s)
Look out! Look out!
Pink elephants on parade
Here they come!
Hippety hoppety
They're here and there
Pink elephants ev'rywhere
Look out! Look out!
They're walking around the bed
On their head
Clippety cloppety
Arrayed in braid
Pink elephants on parade
What'll I do? What'll I do?
What an unusual view!
I could stand the sight of worms
And look at microscopic germs
But technicolor pachyderms
Is really much for me
I am not the type to faint
When things are odd or things
are quaint
But seeing things you know that ain't
Can certainly give you an awful fright!
What a sight!
Chase 'em away!
Chase 'em away!
I'm afraid need your aid
Pink elephants on parade!
Pink elephants!
Pink elephants!

Pink Elephants
Now that is a parade
You have made me smile
Once again.

Oh Bell, this was so classic. I loved it. Thank you so much for a perverbally laugh for me.

Oh, as to how to do the quote thing. Well, on anyone's post there will be a quote box to the right n the lower right hand of the box. You just click on that and it will bring up the quote you are responding to.

Just click after the quote and then you just reply at the end of that.

Bell, I just want you to know how much I appreciate your thoughts and replies.

Love, Deb

The Big Elephant
 
And so it is
That I allow myself
To be taken to points
Beyond what I have ever known

...Before

Questions always, I ask
As new questions arise
From my previously answered questions
And still,

...I wonder

There seems to be no ending
To the answers of my unasked questions
And yet I trace the mode of fashion
With my own self's knowing

...And I continue

Confronted I am within my ownself
And the knowings that seem to be
Emerging within me, slowly seeping
Walking across my heart

...and I hear

The Big Elephant speaks
Triumphant in her presentation
Wondering why I didn't get it before
Looking at me in wonder, herself

...sighing then

Oh then, I hear that silent voice
She will get it in time
And I, wondering what time is
Continues to grasp for my unknown

...eating grass

Yes, that is what I see
The Big Elephant eating grass
Leisurely grasping for
Yet another twig

...succulence

I am coupled with myself
Holding to all that I know
And still wondering
Where does the next twig come from

...in my face

Love, Deb

The Big Elephant
 
The Big Elephant
Feels the breeze
And is captured
By its presence.

Swaying then with the motion
Of the breeze
The Big Elephant
Smiles in her own way.

Doesn't need much
Does she, to be taken off
Into another world
Swaying all along.

And it seems
That in the swaying
That she finds a gratitude
Of some sorts.

Just swaying with the motion
Of being and existing
In her own world
As she just delights

...in being.

Love, Deb

Perceptions
 
Everyone seems to lend
Their perceptions

But do they really
Take responsiblity

For their own perceptions?
I wonder....

The Big Elephant
 
The Big Elephant moves herself
To a safe place under the willows of the trees
Planting herself there, she braces herself.

Though it is silent now, she still hears
The whispers of the winds and directs herself
To protect herself from the coming winds
Holding herself there, she waits.

She then calls all others in
She howls and howls, gathering them in
Feeling comforted then by all those who have come
She stands her charge and waits again.

Waiting then....

Love, Deb
