You said age's only a number, beauty's skin deep
Wise words to live by, now if I could only sleep
Humor never can be taken away, have no regrets
Live like there's no tomorrow, an elephant never forgets
Since the day we met, things have been so right
Thankful for our meeting, making spirits bright
No more feeling lonely, no more feeling stressed
Friendships have started, I am feeling blessed
Not a day has passed without a smile on my face
Feeling happy has now become commonplace
Brought together by chance or was it by fate
Any way you put it, my friend, you are truly great

love hurts, mother,
IN ALL MOTHER'S HEART SPEAK
ant lives in its particular style
elephant and human in other styles
definition of love remains the same
in all mothers' heart speak the same

So ready to play
Trumpets happy attitude
Mother not far off
Ready to rescue
If he gets into any trouble
There are dangers
A lion maybe
She lets him think he's independent
Keeping close enough to save him
At the first sign of danger
Baby elephant plays
Delighted he is free

art, beautiful, care,
Through the corner of my eye I see the bride and the groom,
Slowly our corneas make contact I'm the elephant in the room.
A drunken night.
Sex combined with spite.
Makes a tainted marriage,
a fractured life.
"Speak now" said the priest, "or forever hold your peace."
The best man raised his hand and dropped to one knee.
"I can't let you take what is mine, I fell in love with her first
to me she's more than a bride. She's what keeps my hearts beating, she's whats make the sunshine, the air keeping me breathing"
The woman dressed in white looked down than looked right,
at the man dressed in regret, the man with green eyes.

corruption, culture, health, leadership, patriotic, political, women,
Attention all voters
Who love a great scam
The Republican Party
Now welcomes flimflam
Fell apart at the seams
Through an absence of facts
And a surplus of dreams
Takes a decade or two
To discover what's missing
Is an average IQ
(Most expensive on earth)
Will not save your life
But destroy your net worth
So enlist in a Party
Where the money rolls in
And believe those in Congress
Can spend it like sin
No pilgrim had healthcare
Play the cards that you've got
For, "I am the President,
and you are naught!

Nate-- Touchdown! The crowd goes wild!
Agent-- So your going back to the outpost now?
Nate-- Yeah, Forest is my home. The outpost there is too.
Agent-- O.K. I'll stop by and see you soon.
Nate-- I'll be there. I'll play your song on the way home.
It's still "Say Anything" by Cartel right?
Agent-- You got it. I love that song.
Nate-- Memory like an elephant...
Agent-- Body of a Tiger?
Agent-- Stay safe out there.
Nate-- you too...

adventure, anger, anxiety, bullying, career, conflict, fire,
Why afraid of war
When you have fearless gear
Attacking like the brave
Sending lives to the grave
Brave warriors to the ants
Mimosa pudica to elephant
You are loving peace
While killing innocents
You want to win the battle
When you do the bombing
You don’t fight the mountain
But only from the mole hill
I love you peace. Let’s sail together. Layag Sug

god, love, wisdom, universe,
unleash from ego
soul's love to be duded up
beautify life's world
ant to elephant
elephant to universe
love's purest wisdom
God's the best language
nature's speaking under sky
nothing can stop love

See a play
Spend a day
In old Bombay
Riding on an elephant
Fly up high
In the sky
Birds pass by
As we hang-glide
Falling in love on our descent
Take a tour
A little more
From the floor
In the Louvre of Gay Paris
Bare it all
In a waterfall
And we guffaw
On the big isle of Hawai’i
Spend two nights
In the sights
Of Northern Lights
Up in the cold and Arctic North
Take a cruise
Sip some booze
Throw our shoes
At the alarm clock snooze
As we go sailing forth
These are the things I want to do
And I want to do them all with you
I am sure that you already knew
It would be my dreams all coming true

An elephant in Zimbabwe
Hi-fived with a soft trunky sway.
Then wanting to play
She continued her day
With a hug for the human who waved.
by Zin Lim |
feelings, heart, longing, love, missing, poetry, teen, words, writing,
Blue above and
Clumps of clouds,
Airplanes surge but do not move.
The elephant passes in the room.
I try to sleep,
to turn away,
yet the story stays
I look everywhere except at you.
I see nothing, except for you.
by Elisa Christensen |
absence, angst, cry, heartbreak, loneliness, lost love, love hurts,
The Here and Now
I sit here alone, once again.
The cold winds of this valley howl at me,
Making fun of me, mocking all I live for.
“There you sit, you stupid girl!
Waiting once more.”
For the man who said he loved me.
For the one I trusted above all others.
Waiting.?For the pain to subside.
Because he’s not coming home, he lied.
Was it really that hard to see?
If he wasn’t there with you,
Where was he?
Just not seeing the elephant in the room.
I wish I had never known him,
Never felt his touch,
Never smelled his scent,
Because this, this has ruined me.
I’ll never love again. Not ever.
by Deb M. |
It’s time to address the elephant in the room
Time to talk about the controversial “Mushroom”
A vegetable you either love or hate
An acquired taste there is no mistake
Being a fungi doesn’t enhance the mushrooms case
Along with a rubbery texture many don’t embrace!
It’s been said that the mushroom tastes just like dirt
When did eating dirt ever hurt?!!
Such a wide variety of mushrooms to ingest
Though haters say s**t -ake describes mushrooms best!!
I love Mushrooms……!
by Lacey Petty |
angst, friendship, introspection, love, teen,
Heartbeat trumpeting in my throat,
It does that to me, sometimes,
I force myself to
To neutrality, absurdity, mask,
I remain, the elephant in the room,
No one mentions that I am the elephant in the room,
Iron cored neutrality,
Questions set me grasping for straws at the end,
Best friends, always,
My heart still beating in its cage.
by Jack Ellison |
Twas the funniest sight
Saw an elephant dance
Wearing a frilly green dress
Without any pants
A crowd gathered round
To take in the sight
Some squirrels and penguins
And hippos on bikes
A bunch of silly monkeys
Wearing polka dot ties
Were joking with tigers
Who wore shades for disguise
What a glorious scene
They were all having fun
Taught us fa great lesson
To love everyone
No matter our colour
Or the size of our brawn
Everyone's our brother
So let's all get along
Saw the happiest thing
At a party last night
All the creatures were happy
What a beautiful sight!

If I was an elephant
I would lift my head
Send the sound of trumpets worldwide
Acclaiming peace in the land.
My trumpeting sound would attract
My young friends to come and sit with me
Tell me their troubles and thoughts
Knowing my wise old head would steer them
To be as I am
I tread carefully, so as not too destroy
I remember words of command to do my duty
To love and forgive, make the world a better place
To be able to sit and relax, reflecting all.
I remember that size doesn’t matter
The feelings inside you do
Love the world, help others to do so
This is how I would be…..if I was an elephant
by Zsuzsanna Snarey |
A slow moving gentle creature
With a long trunk and wrinkled skin.
Strange, ridiculous and ugly
and yet he draws us to love him.
He seems to know and understand
has empathy with us humans,
but can also rage if angered
and kill a man by trampling him.
Elephants have a matriarch
and keep together for safety.
The young stay close to their mother,
while the males are solitary.
by Gbenga Onalaja |
The day seems long
Long enough to earn it a weary lot
Weary days like those days just before the trumpet
Trumpet; not of an elephant, but of Zion
Zion; where peace shall abound in fullness
Fullness and profusion of Love alike
Love; sounds familiar but distant
Distant to me since I had none
And I’ve had none since it left
Left, just the way it had come
Came crashing into my life like a misguided Rocket
And leaving earnestly with the speed of a prodded missile
I knew better
Better than chasing slight shadows
She’ll ne’er come back
Not love, but the person that brought it to me
by Christopher Flaherty |
I guess that's why they call it the blues
Because it's blue
A tiny dancer
Dancing a jig
Because life is better with you in the world
That what which
A ship on which to sail
A life put down in words
That I never got across
Because I was to scared
When the failing light and time
Have burnt to the earth
Goodbye to looking up
And all the other stuff I took for granted
Stoke the oil in gasping lanterns
And bring forth the Elephant Trumpet
My King is dead
Long live the night
by Karam Misra |
angst, conflict, depression, emotions, growing up, hurt,
I rave and rant
And love no more
Reason’s been shown the door
The memory of an elephant
Is badly hurt and sore!
Good times I remember not
Cynicism has taken its place
I think it’s a great disgrace
To think halcyon times
Were just a phase!
A tender smile, a loving word
I give a motive now
I don’t believe an ardent vow
It’s just some words you see
Phrased nicely to stop a row!............
