the elephant to its circus trainer

22 May

your tough words
one hammer blow after another
nails in my coffin,
but then i thought ”peanuts”
and the stings became massage pin sighs.
i set my trunk in motion and
remembered the pendulum sweep of both night and day.
i enjoyed a magnolia breeze and
watched as pedals rocked and swayed hammock to
sweet rose romantic earth
funeral bed floor.

    Really cool contrast between the lines!

    watched as pebbles rocked and swayed the hemlock to
    splat on funeral bed door

    My take is a bit more dreary, heh.

      i like your take Millie, but sure hope the birds and squirrels and anyone else passing by doesn’t eat the hemlock.

    Funeral bed floor hard and flat by big, round feet.
