Just a reflecion of life gone by -
and I see a train coursing
through the jungle.
Little villages where the poor,
but happy people live.
I can see mountains reaching
up to the heavens;
pictures of paradise around every bend.
Banana trees and coffee beans,
a day at the beach; smoked shark...
Beaches in a far off land.
The scent of hibiscus and orchid
surround me.
I can see myself alone - as a child;
still remembering the feelings
running through me.
A centrepoint in my aloneness then...
an early acceptance of learning to live.
School days knew difficulties;
the runt of the litter, I suppose, with all
its calamities and disappointments.
Two spirals with crosses on a building...
The symbols of God.
The scent of the earth's perfume
as I travel through the trails
and the valleys.
High up in a tree, I can hear a bird
singing the news of another fine morning.
And, so it begins again...

White Elephants by Chynna Laird

Elephant in the middle of the living room. That is one way of explaining how a family walks around the invisible presence of huge problems. Hindsight is what brings the elephant in..
