No natural enemies
for giraffes to fear
except for hyenas.
Graceful giraffes
delicately munch
on top leaves of
trees, where competition
for food is scarce. Each
giraffe is unique, for no
two patterns are alike.
Although you might call it
quixotic, a giraffe as pet
would be exotic.


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.
