“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!

Kevin Walsh:

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.
