A rose at the zoo
Watches elephant cry, while
Poet writes haiku
Not a Rose
The rose is a rose,
The elephant is not a rose,
And it is not lovely.
An elephant at the zoo is
The poet is a woman,
Who writes about beauty and despair,
While she thinks of lonely elephants,
Watching lovely roses, wondering
Why an elephant is not a rose.
I went to the zoo this morning with my children and grandchildren, and two things struck me; the beautiful roses and the downcast elephant. Well here they are, joined by my pen to be shared to the world.
Hope you were able to take an inspiring walk this Sunday❤
