The Vicuña

Written for:  Blogging From A to Z


High in the Andes,
vicuñas dwell, now
protected after
period of decline
from over-hunting
for their highly
valued wool. Vicuñas
are shy, about three
feet tall, with long
teeth that keep
growing. They dine
on plants, active
during the day. Males
protect a family group
with several females,
and territory. Female
vicuñas all have single
baby births. Bachelor
males have their own
group, alas, no bachelor

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.
