An elemental Frown
wore a serendipitous gown
and danced with a Smile all around
They flowed through the night–
what a breathtaking sight–
if only there was enough light
Eventually,the Frown was kissed by the Smile
It was most definitely worthwhile
until both were swallowed by an enormous crocodile
The crocodile swam west
as his gastric juices began to digest
(and inside his stomach muscles)both were depressed
The crocodile choked
The two were ejected,soaked
Happily,as they ran away,they were very stoked
Though both were together,the Frown disappeared
and a Grin kissed a Smile next to his beard
(while the crocodile hunted,just as we feared)
As for the croc,well,he inherited Frown’s prior frustration
as he slowly died of starvation
Now,museum kept,he’s under sterling preservation
One mean, old Croc! Photo by Thomas Peace c. 2017
My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped.
I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy.
