Thursday zebras

The zebra on the bus stands out
You say Hmmm. This is odd...
The zebra in the shop is not allowed
The clerks do not like to clean up the mess
The zebra in the house takes up too much space, and steps on the cats' tails
The zebra on the plain
Among the thousands of zebras writhing across the hillside like stalks of grain in the wind
Is not distinguishable
She is safe from the lion
Who cannot pick her out against her neighbors

What, you were expecting photos?
Live free of expectations!

And I actually have a photo, this week...except it will be on Friday because I finally failed to create a FSO. But it's hard to find the three zebras in my shot. Nice poem, though, and worth a thousand photos.

Perfection. No images needed!

Yes! Point well taken...live free of expectations...life is far less complicated and happier that way.

Besides, your poem was written so well that I didn't really need one.

Haha, nice images even though they were not photos. And I too love the kitty.
