Now, you might wonder why I have a picture of him (or maybe her?) The answer to that question is that one of the prompts by Big Tent Poetry this week was to write about a fear of animals.
Would you be afraid of this wee critter?
Fear of Animals
If confronted with an axilotl
I’d make a noise which might sound glottal.
And face to face with wee aye-aye?
I might be scared and start to cry.
But ‘dumbo octopus’ just seems
a chilling part of late night dreams
(a nightmare of the Pikachu.)
I would be scared and so would you.
And to be honest, I’ve no wish
to ever meet a (yikes!) blobfish.
But chances are both fat and slim
that I would ever find her (him?)
My fears of creatures that seem freak
have nothing on the mouse. “Squeak.” “EEEEEEEK!
And speaking of peculiar, Three Word Wednesday provided the word prompt of 'peculiar, fabricate and adamant.'

I am adamant:
I really do fabricate
###[Note: Check out this website to see more photos of cute/peculiar animals - like the blobfish, the dumbo octopus and the aye-aye. It's cool - and yes, about that, I am adamant!.]
