Have You Seen a Giraffe’s Tongue?

To show you how big a giraffe is that wildebeest is about 50″ to 58 ” to his shoulder and can weigh up to 600 pounds. They hang out with zebras, both being grass eaters.

Despite its long neck, the giraffe has only seven vertebrae, exactly the same number as man and most other mammals. Click on the bottom image to see his long tongue reaching for the green leaf.

Morning Writing

Wash out all

those ghosts

cobwebs

worrywarts

black cloud critters

chattering

like monkeys

in your swollen

brain

swollen brain filled

with piston-like

repetition

it’s wrong

it’s wrong

it’s wrong

not good enough

for who?

for tinman

looking for his heart?

wash out all

those ghosts

cobwebs

worrywarts

and black cloud critters

chattering

like monkeys

in your swollen

brain

quickly

lay your thoughts

out on the page

protect those tender shoots

of pale green

close the book

then walk away.
