posted earlier, flew to my mind when searching for a word beginning with the letter “E”. Elephants are one of my favorite creatures on the planet. Their twirling trucks and the swoop and swirl of their bulky bodies have mass appeal. The intelligence of elephants shows when they socialize. It is clear to see they are clever in the way that they gently nurture their young and empathetically rub each other's noses while chatting.
I love elephant ears, whether the large fanning African or petite flapping Asian kind. I like having an elephant ornament around the house. Since elephants are known for wisdom, longevity and sheer elegance, (despite being plus-size), they are said to bring good luck, especially when their trunks are turned upward. There are no elephants native to my world in BC. They are seen only in zoos or in the circus and seem lost when not free to roam.
Elephants are the largest living land animals on the globe. Each over-200-pound baby is thought to be an offshoot of prehistoric mammoths. When they travel the wild with their families, I love how they wrap their trunks around the tail of the elephant ahead for safety. And I love how they stamp their footprints deep into the dust as they saunter gracefully across the horizon.
