Once Upon A Dream & Labyrinth Of Existence

First published on https://pentoprint.org/thoughtful-tuesdays-nonsense-poetry/

Another Pen to Print poet, Palak Tewary, sent her lovely poem. I love how it includes so many animals. Their fantastical stories remind us of our need to care for the world we live in.

Once Upon A Dream

The hippos and the crocodiles
in the garden made
the loveliest ecological disasters

The cheetahs and the elephants
in the lake made
the pleasantest natural tsunamis

The herons and the swans
in the forest made
the smartest organic cyclones

The whales and the dolphins
on the mountains made
the finest environmental landslides

The sounds and the shapes
of these visions made
the wildest intense slumber

Palak has also created this unusual, visual poem, which we feel bound to follow as it draws us into its web.
