Once upon a Elephant

I saw an elephant -
sitting on my gazebo in my backyard
she waved her trunk and hooted for me
to sit beside her~

Now to be sure-
I was flummoxed and bemused
amused and mildly confused---
to see her sipping tea~
while patiently waiting
to discuss my spirituality
with the likes of me-

As you can see
I was humbled as well as~
slightly terrified---
that the Great White Elephant
that resided in the faintly
touched corners of my imagination-
would show herself---
in all her splendor and render
her glorious enlightenment upon ~
a disillusioned old coot
with an un-tuned and slightly used flute.
