Elephants

May 26, 2011

Gray.
Broad and bold.

Calm, yet intimidating
Noble.

Tremendous.
Precious beast.

Interesting;
I must know more.

Elegant.
Passionate compassion.

Those soft eyes
Adoration.

Footsteps… like drums.
Beating drums.

Soft.
A thunderstorm.

Captivating beauty
Natural wonders.

Large as a house
Light as a feather.

Pure souls and
Golden hearts.

Elephants.

As a soon-to-be Marine Reservist and Commanding Officer of a Marine Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps, I can say you hit the nail on the head!

P.S. to the fellow in the picture: Marines don't salute indoors ;)
