Emu

Written for:  Blogging From A to Z – “E”

E is for Emu
Australia’s their home.
Flight-less birds, they eschew
wing or airplane; on ground they roam.

In their throats
emus have a pouch.
When inflated,they boast
sounds of booming, grunting, of which I can’t vouch.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
