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....

Dogs howl, Elephants trumpet.

It is a poignant little verse anyway, and I like the novelty of a howling elephant!
Very Original!:)

Well you just never know. Ahhaha, a howling elephant, well it certainly addresses the senses, does it not? She says she loves you anyway.

howling
 
howling is a feeling
and it worked for me
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



moving closer
my elepahnt hooves
push the earth and i reach out
with my long trunk
to you
waiting.

Ah my friend, you have come
So glad that you have heard my call
We will be safe here
Amidst these trees
Together, we will be protected
Together, we will watch out for each other
Together...

Love, Deb

The Big Elephant
 
Ah, the storm has passed
Now we move again
To find feed and water

The skies are filled with the Sun
The wind is silent
And so we move again

Another day to appreciate.

Love, Deb
