I am a hippo
sitting in the sand
a hippo
playing my little song
a hippo
ain’t going any where
a rock hard hippo
sitting here.

The waves come by
and wash my back
then I get a drink
and relax from the track
I am a hippo
ahh ya do you see
or are you blind
for my eyes I can’t see.
A hippo.

Motivation for this Poem
Photography is a fun hubby. More specifically nature photography. In one of my writing sessions, I’d used this photo prompt and this piece evolved. What do you see?
