at attention, thick and lush
trees are standing in the hush
of the forest's dappled light
standing all day and at night

unseen beings everywhere
on the ground and in the air
elesphinxes, ravens too
always watching what we do

as we wander, as we roam
in the forest, in their home
when deemed worthy, minds at rest
elesphinxes coalesce

into mountains, rising high
with the forest, touching sky
eagles soaring, butterflies
elesphinxes, seeming wise

as trees are standing, in the lush
forest mountain, as we rush
as we wander, as we roam
feeling welcome, we are home

Author's Note
Best with headphones...a nearby mountain, viewed from the right angle, looks like a giant sphinx shape with an elephant head,...the Elesphinx referred to in this poem
