What stories might Mother Elephant tell…

WEAVING THE LONG NOW TOGETHER

What stories might Mother Elephant tell
    to guide her herd through the dark eclipse?

What songs might the whales exchange
   of bygone currents and plenty krill?

Do gods send sighs over centuries,
   as we waste seconds and breath,
   barely seeing what is with us still?

Devangshu Dutta is a student of life.
