Remembering the Elephants

Remembering the Elephants


The rose is the first from my garden this past summer. I put it in front of the tusks in memory of the elephants. The tusks have been in my family since 1968. They were purchased in Nigeria before I was old enough to know what they were. They’ve been in the U.S. since 1969, when we moved back home. I keep them because I can’t give them back to their original owners.
