Yakety Yak

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


High up on the Himalayas,
yaks make their home. Shaggy
hair and thick wooly coats
keep them adaptable to ice
cold weather. Yaks have
up-curving horns, and are
sociable animals gravitating
to large herds. They are
herbivores, and all the females
are one-third the size of the
males. And you talk about
unequal pay!

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.

    Such underrated creatures. I’ve heard some people drink Yak milk. I’d like to try that, if it’s true.

    I hope you and yours are staying safe and healthy during this difficult time.

  2. Yaks are so beautiful. I’ve tried yak milk tea – not my favorite. 🙂 Congrats on your A to Z!
