Ellie, My Stuffed elephant

By Zachary Newshel

Many people have
Stuffed teddy bears,
Or
Rabbits,
But I have
A stuffed elephant.
His name
Is
Ellie.

His tail,
A little shredded,
From all the times
I rubbed it against my hand.

His neck,
With no stuffing,
From all the times
I squeezed him tight in a hug.

His blue fur,
All matted down,
From all the times
I used him to brush away my tears.

His amber eyes,
A little scratched,
When they stare at me,
I wonder
Just how many memories
A stuffed elephant
can hold.

AMP #4 small by most standards but then again no reference to be seen so who are we to judge another man! LOL. Wonderful series Antonio

What an eclectic mix - from what I've seen of Sri Lanka so far, it seems to be a place with interesting contrasts at every turn. Enjoyed your captions. smile

I cracked up reading your captions, but laughed the most with #4. The caption is perfect but also there is so much I can say about the statue itself and what it is representing, but I will keep my mouth shut because otherwise I will end up in the gutter. 😁
So........how many of those gifts did you buy?

Glad you have a wonderful travel. A very good series of Sri Lanka. Of course, you have a good last station.
