thoughts mired within walls

mountains lay across their paths

a crash of rhinos


repose in sunshine

lethargic rumination

within armored skin


ages march onward

doting mothers watch their young

horns caress grey flanks


time to leave this place

to forage in new valleys

find refuge anew


hyenas follow

waiting for eyes to wander



summit clouds gather

lightning stirs their thoughts of home

beyond mountain walls

You are nothing less than amazing! Brilliant and stirring Haiku, which I so love, and an intensely interesting topic.

I'll bet your children love to have you read to them!

God bless you, Rhonda

What a wonderful series of haiku! I would copy Taylor's review as she said it so well... You humanized your subject and that is not always easy to do and do it well.. nice work!
Always, Myrna
Reviewed by Taylor Ryan
Such a gentle haiku string in reference to such a deadly yet endangered creature. Are their thoughts mirrored within their own armor? Impossible to believe that an animal so protected by nature with plates and horns would have to seek shelter or are they like man sometimes, trusting and blind to the slinking and predatory hynea no longer free to graze or rest in safety. Your descriptive sense of home and safety humanizes the Rhino, Butch...and I suspect that was your intention. I enjoyed this poem very much.
