Criss crossing the continents
Mammoths, mastodons, elephants
Moving through spacetime
Loving intensely and mourning their dead
Revisiting the graves time and time again
Crying sad tears for humanity. Lost.
Showing us the way, we miss the point.
Today they are boxed in. They resist.
There are few places left that welcome ellies
So they climb over zapping wires
Just to follow ancient instincts, and desires.
Great Mother elephant I salute you now.
I want to be like you. I will switch off the tv,
Follow your scent and become more like you.
Show me the way, my great Mother spirit.
