Final Silence settled in.
And, who’s to say how the message arrived?
Spilled by the stars, perhaps, bandied by drumbeats,
thrumming of heartstrings, implications of eagles,
gossip of frogs insinuated in sinuous rivers,
tattled by trees, whispered in the wind, trunk to trunk….
It really doesn’t matter how
they discerned the news
or whether or not

Inspired by events following the death of Lawrence Anthony (author / The Elephant Whisperer )
“If there ever were a time, when we can truly sense the wondrous ‘interconnectedness of all beings,’ it is when we reflect on the elephants of Thula Thula. A man’s heart’s stops, and hundreds of elephants’ hearts are grieving. This man’s oh-so-abundantly loving heart offered healing to these elephants, and now, they came to pay loving homage to their friend.”
