The animals , a photo by David A. Ford on Flickr
under the cloudy night sky,
a full moon glows ,
gaudy toy animals come out of their burrows,
unafraid of the murmurs outside their door,
entranced by the music coming from the enchanted guitar
marked with a purple inky exotic abstract design along its rim.
They come together by the undulated curves of the guitar ,
their friendship contingent only on their love of music,
they come in a common goal to spin, dance and sing
as the songs fill the abyss of their hearts with joy.
