The Elephant House at London Zoo

All day we have been
At the elephant house
Watching these giants trying to move
An elephant in the wild
Occupies 100 square miles of territory;
Here they are fitted into an architecture
Moulded to their shape
But solidfying, regidifying, atrophying.
At night we go home
On the bus or the tube
Our homes of convenience
Our own little cage in London Zoo.

    Lovely and insightgul thoughts:

    “At night we go home
    On the bus or the tube
    Our homes of convenience
    Our own little cage in London Zoo.”

    Although homes confine our physical bodies, they can also be restful and nurturing. Our spirits and thoughts roam free despite the perceived confinement.

    Please do write more.
