Premium Member The Balancing Giraffes
The balancing giraffes were standing high end to end.
Each one a relative or a terrifically great friend.
I would not have truly believed it myself of course
For I have never seen it in elephants or horse.

But I was in an airplane...Read More

Premium Member All Powerful Giraffe
She was a powerful giraffe, all proud and tall 
I saw her strength, and I stood in awe
Her height was noticeable even before I noticed
She was eating a cloud with her right jaw.

Sure, he said, staring into my eyes.

Yes I would be a giraffe if I could.
Walking proudly on an African plain
Eating leaves from the highest banyan tree
Flipping my idiotic looking tail

My Spirit Animal Is A Zoo
Beware the morning tiger
Before his first coffee
  Look out for the afternoon lizard:
  Ectotherm on the sidewalk soaking in other people’s acknowledgement
    On occasion I’m a hummingbird
    Seeking life’s nectar while shying...Read More

Premium Member Reality Check
A kangaroo in dungarees hops hopefully 
	To win first prize in the Favs contest hot
		On the heels of an enlightening glow worm

Surely life is no competition but the stage lights
	Reverberates all the promising contenders
		Reincarnation oils the wheels of the jury

Premium Member My Symbol Face NOT FOR CONTEST
If looks were death
My face would kill
The mirror tells me this

When I wrinkle a piece of paper
Throw it away I see my face
With eyes as blind as a bat

Hair of a bald eagle
Whats left is gray
Whiskers of a walrus

Under this...Read More

A giraffe, an Okapi and a blue wildebeest
Walked into a bar hoping to have an horde ‘ore feast
A bongo, an Asian water buffalo came in too.
I’ve decided to sneak out. How about you?

A camera, the battery, charger and film…(what is that?)
A flashlight, lighter, matches and something to burn. 
A bag, a flag, a blanket, and comfort to sleep.
A favorite pillow, and bear, “yes you can bring him”. 

The telephone the charger, maybe...Read More

Giraffe at the Watering Hole
Giraffe at the watering hole

She splays her forelegs one at a time
levering, leaving dignity 
behind, easing down to a 
half sideways split; then bends
to drink, hoping no 
lion arrives

Premium Member While riding a paisley tiger

I collected the kinetic swirls
of differing shades
in the dizzying reflections
of how you made me feel

Whirling affects
blurred in calliope sonnets
and brass ring reachings
while riding a paisley tiger

My pockets filled
with these mesmerizing emotions
sculpted of Ferris Wheel desires
and carousel dreams of you

Until suddenly...Read More

Premium Member How Many Fingers Does A Sandwich Have
Sandwiches don’t have fingers but
A finger sandwich has many those you eat
Try and finger that one out
A Giraffe is tall and can see over a wall

But an elephant has a longer nose
Monkeys can climb trees with ease
But birds can fly...Read More

Premium Member Why is my neck so long
Suzi the giraffe was all but 2 years old,
inquisitive, sensitive and positively bold.
She asked her mum a question, in no uncertain terms,
‘Why is my neck so long’ a statement which affirms.
‘But you are a giraffe and all our necks are...Read More

We go to see the animals, 
the zebra and the bear.
The lion, the tiger, 
and sometimes the small hair.
No, not the one… on top of my head. 
The one that is soft and has very big, fat feet.

If I were a color, I think I would be pink. 
It is soft and sweet, the smell, the kindest treat. 
Perhaps not…
If I were an animal, I think I would be a giraffe.

The Uncanny Episode

while dreaming one afternoon about perfection
what else
the notion erupted that wakefulness is not
it's that simple
but what complicates matters
is the mania to compensate
for the perceived unperceived or vice versa
during which time the totality
is left abandoned on the linoleum floor
of a tedious...Read More

At the zoo, I was walking one day
when my young son had wandered away.

I glanced back; he came running to me:
"Mom, a dinosaur.  Come look and see!"

I looked to the left and the right.
No dinosaur, of course, was in...Read More
