On my walk this morning….the wind was blowing loud

and as the moon lit up the darkened sky I saw elephants in the clouds.


What made this morning special…it wasn’t just one elephant I found…

No, everywhere I looked…there were elephants all around.


Elephants laughing, jumping, playing…elephants on the run

elephants doing somersaults…elephants having fun.


And I can say with confidence…I hadn’t had one drink

when I tell you one little elephant was waving at me…

and another one was pink!


I watched these elephants for a while…high up in the sky

until they began to fade away…until the little one waved goodbye.


And I had to smile as I wondered early…

alone…far from the maddening crowds:

How special is a day that begins

with elephants in the clouds?
