A timeline of the amazing things that happen to your body in the minutes, hours, days, weeks, and months after you stop eating sugar.
I pull over on Cabrillo to watch the rain through my car window, a blur of swaying palm trees and cloud-burst windy skies, an impression by chance, an engraving on a wet afternoon into a waterfall …
vibrating in morning breeze
a captive insect
to a tree, a bush, the ground
delicate silk strands
shimmer in the rain
centered spiral shines
golden sun illuminates
Author’s Note:It is Troiku Month at Carpe Diem. The haiku given to work with is:
To a tree, a bush, the ground
Centered spiral shines

An elephant never is a journal inspired by our favorite pachyderm and each week, they offer truncated tales (flash fiction), rumbling rhymes (poetry), elephant art, and creative nonfiction on a variety of themes.

How small and insignificant I feel As the waves lap the shore In my mind I escape to a place where My thoughts have never gone before Would
