The elephants met in the middle
Of the afternoon, some time after
Not seeing each other. They both tried
To hide their excitement.
Days of solitude are hard,
And months can feel like years.
It was as if they had forgotten
How much of themselves they could show.
The sun was bright, and the vastness
Around them, made a perfect scenario
For their reunion. Yet, they pretended
To be calm, even solemn.
It wasn’t long before one of them smiled,
And the other reciprocated. They had
Missed each other, and it was okay
To express it.
Two elephants no longer lonely,
Meeting on an otherwise uneventful
Tuesday. Two friends reunited,
While the world moves forward.
