Trees infused with sunlight
Dwarf an early morning visitor
He knows this path well

He passes
Gingerly through shafts
Of dappled sunlight

Retired from logging
This stroll is part of his daily routine
Occasionally, he swims in the Andaman Sea

His travels have taken him deep
Into the rain forest
He never forgets his way
He’s an Asian elephant
