Sunset and Sand

                   the walk of the herd.
Elephants on parade
for the picturesque view.  Panorama
and paranoia rule
this range, ruined by drought
and time.
                  To display emotion is
beneath them.  Their losses
are their own.  To remember,
they march . . . days . . . weeks . . . months
pass in silent . . . meditation?
Prayer?  Maybe
                          their movement
is the ideal.  Commemoration
through continuity.
What a thought to settle.  On
into night!
