GENTLE GIANTS






I'd like to live with the elephants.
Just for a while, my camera and I.
Look into their knowing eyes through long dark lashes. 
Play down at the waterhole, trunks flying- squirting water.
Walk along holding each other's tails.
Swish the heat and flies away with large flappy ears.
Run my palm over their thick earth-like skin.
