The photographer snapped a picture
of a Mother Rhino and her young calf.

"Its amazing to capture a picture of them
together here in their natural setting!"
he exclaimed beaming.

In the background,
I observed tall matted grasses,
last night's sanctuary.

In the near foreground,
I see the young male calf
winding in and out of his Mother's legs,
weaving a chain of interdependence and connected-ness,
his sweet expression is appealing,
a deep smile.

Reappraising their surroundings,
I take note in the "natural environment there are
well-worn tire ruts in the muddied road
criss-crossing the fields
and wonder at the excision
of the wild
in what remains
of this last documented wilderness.
