This is too cute. The faucet DOES look just like the tip of an elephant's trunk! I'll never look at it the same way again.
Helen...i love it! :-)
This is so charming, and I completely agree with Willow's comment. That's what I first thought when I saw this picture :D
Nice haiku, Helen.
Helen I have to smile because I want to be tickled too.
Elephant's trunk - it is, isn't it? Love what you did with this!
Helen,I saw the trunk too. Turn the picture upside down and you have a strange wall sconce with toes coming from the ceiling.
HelenThis is a lovely piece. I am really enjoying this picture and the responses so far.
Haha, Helen. I like that: elephant trunk.
Dear Helen,This somehow reminds me of what my daughter said to me when she first realised when she was four that boys are different than girls at her kindergarten (remember we have 5 girls and - I hope she forgives me for posting this, you too.)"Mum, I saw Adam in the toilet at kindergarten. Boys don't have bibik (Malay for you-know...) Did you know they have an elephant nose there?"Oh forgive me for posting this, but your post reminded me of this hilarious moment for me - the things we parents have to put a straight face to and explain.
Lets hope the elephant's trunk doesn't try sucking up the water! lol :)
At first glance, I couldn't figure out what those toes were doing on either side of that elephant's trunk. It took a moment, lol. So, love your poem because it affirms my own response. That also means it will stay with me much longer, because it makes me smile and laugh.Elizabeth
Tickle my toes, and blow in my ear....thanks for the idea of the elephant. And elephants love to take a soak in the forest.
how sweet and fun. Love it! Tickle my toes...

The tap reminded me of an elephant's trunk too! Sweet tale.
Of course it does look like an elephant's trunk I didn't see that at all!Very funny.
