Request For 'First Giraffe' Poems

It's time to show your cards, and see what the other poets have on their minds. The Linky widget included with this posting is a fine way to leave a link to your poem inspired by the 'First Giraffe' prompt, or any other poem you want to share. Comments are available if Linky doesn't work for you, or you want to add encouraging remarks, or any other remarks.

I'm through for a while so Saturday night Tiel Aisha Ansari will put up the next Totally Optional Prompt. And, thanks for your support.

I'm new to TOP so I'm still finding my way around poetry, so please bear with me. (hmm.. sounds a rhyme)

Thanks for the prompt!

This prompt did nothing for me. Hence no participation. Enjoy all of you..

I love this prompt. Alas, it sent me to write a short story instead of a poem, and it isn't finished yet.

But thanks for the prompt anyway!

I stumbled upon your site and felt the challenge to write something. I wrote a senryu. I had a blast writing this and reading the other submissions.

I normally wouldn't use the link to my whole page, but I hadn't written anything since January and suddenly this week...4 poems! They're all pseudo-related to each other (but not this week's prompt). One is in response to the long past prompt "Letter to the Editor."
