Three blind men

Tree blind men

Tree blind men

Three blind man
Wandering in the forest
Bump into an elephant

One describes the feet as stems
Another the skin as hairy
And the third the tail as thin and coarse

None of them sees the big picture
And their interpretation is subjective
And partial when it comes to describing the elephant

One thing is for sure
When the elephant trumpets annoyed by them
They have to reconsider their opinion:

What is this?

And so are we
Jailed in blindness and opinions
Untill the trumpet blows



Sound of the African Bushvekd elephants

Just scribbling about life. Poetry and the wonder of word and language. An allegory says more than long explanations. It sinks and sinks and sinks. And one day... it comes back to the surface!
