Spiky hair,
brittle waves,
spiny Anteater,

A kid
growing up
The long tongues
of children
gibe him sharp.

Tumbleweed in the schoolyard.
Can’t tread him down.
Hurts are on the surface
like frozen
alphabet spaghetti.

Thorns and barbs,
jagged Jeers,
quills quietly quivering
the quarry -
face tucked
into his heart.

Premium Member Echidna Gives Me Lots of Advice
Echidna was giving me lots of advice
Giving it hard, expertly, and at least thrice 
Encouraging me to go to a dentist now
Warning me as only bossy echidnas know how.
Her argument held no weight after I remember
Something she told me way...Read More

Premium Member Echidna and Platypus Besties
The echidna and the platypus were friends.
They both had a teeny tiny secret, one and the other.
The sweet platypus had venom on his ends.
He was told to keep this hidden by his mother.

The short-nosed echidna could lay eggs as well...Read More

Walking Through The Rainforest
Walking through the rainforest
Koala in a tree
Mr.Hungry Dingo
Staring at me

Living in Australia
Happy as can be
Sunburnt country is the best
I'm sure you will agree

Many native species
Australia is their home
Couldn't be anywhere else
As says this Aussie poem

Platypus in the river

The Echidna
A little crack appears in the egg
Out pops a little leg
Something wiggles out all the way
A little echidna is born today 

Echidna sits in Mummy's pouch
It's as comfy as a couch
Echidna drinks Mummy's milk
Her little body soft as silk

Echidna baby...Read More

Once there was an echidna fairly, like no other.
Oh, how much they cared for each other
They lived in a forest that was unknown
And spoke in a very quiet tone

The oldest of all was Grandfather Echidna, he was one hundred and...Read More

An Echidna's Christmas
Birds are singing in the trees
The echidna family awakens for Christmas Day
Ready to find a breakfast of ants
While the puggles play

Then they gather under a tree
To exchange gifts and presents
And many happy talks
Each echidna very pleased with their gifts and...Read More

The Garden At Night
The last people clear away
The garden is finished for the day 
The garden gnomes have a little shuffle 
The flamingo statue has a scuffle 

Night has fallen, the garden is alive
It's as busy as a hive
The garden gnomes tend to...Read More

Every echidna 
Crawling around 
Hunting for ants
In the ground
Digging their burrows 
Night and day
All the way
Sunrise to sunset...Read More

I was walking in the woods and saw a marvellous sight,
It was a rainbow echidna, colourful and bright.
The light bounced off each and every spine.
My oh my, the rainbow echidna looked fine.

Kangaroo To The Rescue
A young cyclist called Jimmy Pike,
Famous for riding his cross-country bike,
Hit an echidna, his tire went flat,
Stopping his long trek,there he sat,
I think he might have to hitch-hike.

 A kangaroo came jumping strong,
 Paused, then asked, "What is wrong?"

It was the day of 
dead patriarch.  
I was fondling an echidna.

The home was 
carried away in the-
storm. Must find a broom.

On the remains- 
of a burned-out soul.
A hope sits on the altar.

A piano drenched in rain-
will not sing...Read More
