Joyful summertime

Elephants in love kiss

There is not a single second they want to miss

on this crazy strong solar day.

They are enjoying each other’s company

One tells the other: Run with me

The other elephant runs, feeling free

But he runs too fast, hurting his knee.

She elephant says: That is OK

We can sit down

and quietly watch the sea.

Late afternoon vibe, ocean on a calm day

A not so familiar sight of

elephants embracing each other.

Not a bother crossing their mind

as they are enjoying a beautiful sunny day at the beach

Most important is

Their hearts are beating within each other’s reach

The only other sound’s the break

of distant waves and birds wide awake.
