Having Fun With Words

pandas play


God and the Animals at the National Zoo

He swings the elephants’ trunks
and plays jump rope with the black howler monkeys.

He says, “Bye, son,” to the American bison

He loves the pandas because they are black, white, and Asian–
diversity at its finest.

He helps the turtles carry their houses around
and find where to settle

The whooping cranes whoop with excitement
when they see God coming.


Sometimes when things aren’t fun, I’m glad that I can have words and writing. It always helps. Even when I don’t expect it to be “therapeutic writing.”


About lana1967

I'm a Southern girl at heart who wants to build a community of people who believe they can change the world with words like "love" and "freedom" when they become more than words, but actions in our work and our daily lives.
