This week, she tells us
Tomorrow is International Zebra Day, a day to bring awareness to zebras, their living conditions, and how the three remaining types in the wild can be protected. One type, Grèvy’s is endangered, its numbers rapidly lessening due to poaching for their pelts. More than 54% of its total population has been lost.
stripe, Africa, bookstore, puzzle, obscure, luminary, reproduction/reproduce,
cuddle/y, border, grandiose, revolutionary, woolly
One of Africa‘s beauties,
Soon to be seen only in bookstores, or
Pictures in puzzle books.
Calls upon a luminary Elder,
One who sees a revolutionary
Need to introduce a reproduction program
In grandiose captivity
Before they disappear into obscurity.
Not cuddly or woolly pets,
These striped creatures are unique
And should roam free in the wild
With no borders.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Good use of the words…well done.

    Oh, I do hope not only in pictures in books and puzzles. Great use of those words! A lot of things today need the help of a luminary elder, don’t they?

  3. All these years later, I still don’t believe that people really kill animals for their skin. There was a time — years ago — when I didn’t get it, but I was a kid back then. I’ve learned a lot since then and the idea of slaughtering ANYTHING for its pelt is sickening. How can anyone DO that?

    I saw them in Zimbabwe, they were majestic creatures
