Look at me, The Elephant Tree
"Look at me, The Elephant Tree"
Love this +Kevin Walsh...that's my favorite line in your poem.
Everyone check out Kevin's poem below. Fun!
that you might get close to the sun
I rose up on two mighty legs.
these grey bones joined together
with a dozen tiny white pegs.
look at me, the elephant tree
with you climbing up through my limbs,
a shapely fruit rising toward heaven
as the sun slowly dims.
is this what it took
to get me off of my feet?
was it you that I rose for
amidst this dirt covered street?
i learned something that day
stretched tall with you held so high.
i learned that in holding you up
i too touched the sky.
