Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
I didn’t think I’d make Poetry Friday this week, but then…
I wrote “giraffe eyelashes” in my gratitude list one night after an episode of The Secret Life of the Zoo (I adore that show!). The next day, I received some notecards I ordered from my uber-talented niece, Amanda’s Etsy shop, and she included an extra giraffe drawing/painting! So clearly, I needed to jot a poem for a giraffe.
I actually didn’t want to make the poem all about the neck, because there are so many other things I love about giraffes. But for a quick poem, apparently the giraffe neck sucked me in like a black hole–haha!
And for lots of wonderful poetry, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with poet, former teacher, and lovely person Mary Lee Hahn–the one who keeps us all organized on our hosting schedule!
