Herd of Elephants

Beautiful, individual, hand-made pieces of furniture,
Made from fair-trade timber from the Indian continent.
The wood, known as sheesham comes from the Dalbergia Sisoo tree.
The knots and whorls create unique patterns on all the surfaces.
I am happy to know my pieces of furniture are so unique.
They fill my home with warmth, stir the air of creativity,

That has lain so still, so quiet, for so long.
My writer’s desk beckons, a wall unit full of books.
My favourite hideaway cupboard with elephants on the doors.
They are gold coloured inlaid into the darkest green.
Like the forest from where they originally came.
They stand two by two, trunks facing my little herd of sixteen!
