she is

she is by anelephantcant

she is by anelephantcant

she is
in the winter
in the dark
a bird
that sings
butterfly wings

she is
the night sky
full of stars
twanging guitars
a laugh
that can light
the longest night

she is
over stones
a violin’s
sweet tones
in spring
an eagle
on the wing

she is
a smile
a glance
that can dance
blue sky
white cloud

she is
a quite
perfect wife
everything right
in my life
good luck
a hug
a door
never shut


About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless.

  1. I too got a little crazy at the end but it still left me enjoying this verbal sculpture of the heart.


  2. Dear Elephant,

    That last line is a sucker punch. You have a knack for darkening the lightest moment. Wonderfully constructed and heartbreaking.
