check your mind
Be on your guard
Pull yourself out
as an Elephant from mud…
If the mud ain’t flying
You ain’t trying…
Go through the mud
It isn’t deep
wish your daddy
like mine ??
The world is
If you pray
be prepared for
(words: internet posters…)

Pictures worth than a thousands word; and with poetry its a marvelous piece. I am always fascinated since childhood in wildlife and sanctuary and also a bit in photography. With the best blend of all of them with poetry… just no words. You works make me stunned, astonished and grateful at the same time.
