Fearless blue giraffe

I am a fearless blue giraffe.

As soon as I saw it, 

I wanted to adopt it. 

The sentence. 

 

I’d also adopt a giraffe.

A pocket-sized one.

Or even a horse-sized one. 

I’d adopt its attitude, too.   

 

Fearless freedom, fluffy fur. 

A mantra looping in my mind.

Low volume, rhythm high.

Brown. Blue. Yellow-mellow.  

 

Stretching my neck

I can spot a feeling.  

It smells of ginger candles. 

It tastes like chocolate fudge.    

 

Tell me the truth, day or dark. 

I’m not scared of finding out.

Green. Orange. Lemon pie.

Fearless. Blue. Giraffe.

 

Happy World Giraffe Day! This poem is dedicated to all wonderful giraffe creatures on this planet. It was inspired by a sentence from Lily King’s novel “Writers & Lovers”: I am a fearless blue giraffe.
