With five spreading lobes

Can't get one to grow
In my small herb garden plot
Armadillo digs...

Amorous
you are my amorous armadillo
you reflect in the clouds that billow,

    and when i am lonely
    i think of you only

and whisper your name on my pillow!...

THE ARMADILLO

There was an armadillo
That came from Amarillo
He discovered an 18-wheeler
To really be a killer
Now the armadillo from Amarillo
Lies in death on a concrete pillow
Perhaps he should have stayed in Amarillo...

Hunting Frog
Hunting Frog, late night
Splash, a stream of piercing light
bubbles from beneath 

I watch, amazed at
the path they follow across
the pond in a line

explosive, the sound
as the wet armadillo
touches the still earth...

Keep busy in this world
keep busy in this world
as a frog, jump
like a bird, fly
as a human being love
like a hoe plant
as a tongue talk
like an armadillo, sleep
as a sun, be generous
but as a Pangolin be obscure
this world of business
knows no friend or foe

SMALL CHILD CHARACTERISTICS

SMALL    CHILD    CHARACTERISTICS



Runs into a hundred resting  pigeon
Which explode into an escaping cloud

Eats her ice-cream with my shirt as napkin
Asks awkward family questions aloud

Favourite animal today – armadillo
Sleeps across me as her pillow

Armadillo


Love is a true story.
Love takes time.
True love means being faithful,
And truly loving only one woman for the rest of my life.
At this moment she is only on my mind;
I hope one day to find her hand in mine.

Premium Member The Aardvark and the Pangolin
The Aardvark and the Pangolin,
Romantically, had been entwined.
But infidelity, was in the air,
Aardvark, had a new suiter in mind.

Pangolin, did challenge his rival,
The Anteater with beautiful snout.
Don’t fear for me, on your betrayal,
Sweet Armadillo, is taking me out.

Short Ribs A: Gourmet or Gourmand
The aardvark is a quirky beast,
Uniquely dentalated,
And to the armadillo gastronomically related.
He dines on termites, ants and such,
Most any bug his tongue can touch,
On fruits and veggies, not so much,
Just when he's low on Vitamin C....
Or needs to be re-regulated.

Roly poly armor plated,
Clumsy gated beast.
Looking for a juicy worm,
A creepy, crawly feast.

Sleeping mostly through the day,
Prowling at night,
seeming quiet, docile, shy,
He can put up a fight.

Not a trouble maker,
It's just his lot in life.
He does his best not to be seen.
He's trying to survive....

My Restless Pillow
My Restless Pillow 

 
Crying in my pillow,

my limbs hanging 

as feeble and limp

as a weeping willow.

 

Drowning my sorrows

 in mounds of raspberry 

stuffed cheesecake phyllo,

running from my regretful 

days in ten gallon hat Texas,

when I spent my days

walking with the gray armadillo..

Armadillo


Armor placed upon a knighted
Rat, defender of the gold, not the
Man whose crown adorns it.
Addled pretender to the throne,
Dunce, in hidden jesters robe
Ill bred, ill tempered, 
Lothario, pompous preening,
Lecherous serpent seeking
Only the safety of self.

Alice's House
Redbud and dogwood have blossomed
above the tulips and jonquils where
Alice's house used to be.

A possum and raccoon nose around 
where the garage was before the tornado. 
An armadillo has joined them.

Someone has hung a red feeder from
the old clothesline. No hummingbirds yet.
Spring has brought new life over there.

Premium Member Wong Road Taken
(With apologies to Robert Frost)

Four feet to the sky, he lay
in an attitude of surrender
confessing his sins
of hunger, of greed
of slavery to his quest
for surprise, for enchantment
around the next bend.

The Armadillo found
that life sometimes slings
death and destruction
and the road not taken
would have been the right one
had he known.

Sorry, I Only Caught The End of Our Conversation
Fist clenched,
fingernails dig their curves into my skin.
Heavy footprints grow silent.
I unravel my fist slowly;
like an armadillo when it knows it’s safe, 
extending my fingers out towards the stale air.
I watch as it sits there, 
in the center of my palm, 
near my zig-zag scar 
Times new roman 12 point black; 
 B*tch
Staring back at its new rightful owner.

Mercy Me
Mercy me what have I done?
I saw my daddy shoot his gun.

Heard a noise at night, and brought him out.
Him, his flashlight and his 410 no doubt.

An armadillo's what I heard,
It wasn't a cat, or a dog or a bird.

The flashlight's beam shown on his head,
He raised up, and boom! The armadillo's dead!

Mercy me, look what daddy's done!
He shot an armadillo with his gun!

The armadillo In his protective thick shell Holds not a candle To the armor protection Built around his emotions
Holds not a candle: Meaning: To compare badly to a know authority_to be unfit even to hold a subordinate position.. Orgin: Apprentices used to be expected to hold the candle so that more experienced workmen were able to see what they were doing.. ...

The Scent of Water
Desert dust devils reign supreme
Swirling in conditions extreme

Dry, cracked river bed yawns wide
Depleted source long denied

Armadillo negotiates
Lost to his instinctive traits

He halts to sniff a draught of air
Frenzied digging does then occur

Grubbing for ants, worms or mice?
He digs a deep hole in a trice

Ground darkens to a muddy brown
The scent of water.......his home found....

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 Elephant nose
That holds up my glasses
With Armadillo hearing

What did you say?
Lips like a Jackass smiling
A neck as a Giraffe

What can I say: It’s just me

(ALL FICTION HONEST GIRLS)...
