Water drips from the high rocks
hushed droplets fall upon the flora
elephant leaves scream in horror.
A red popsicle melts on the path
children run all around the walkway
delicate orchids stare in contempt.
Cell phones are constantly ringing,
people answer and talk about nothing
a pygmy marmoset watches in awe.
A day at the South American park.

Excellent write.
Excellent title!
How annoyed the wildlife must be with us bipedals.
The simplistic verse,
Has such a deep wealth of meaning. I've learned much from your writings,
