Z for ABC Wednesday

ABC Wednesday completes Round 4 with Z. Thank you!

Looking forward to Round 5...



Zebra Scar

Wild words skid
amid lucky bamboo
call the cry of scars
paddle down the moon

bereft of useful mojo
sundry recent dead
sidestep history's debt.


One mad zebra
kicks a bird of paradise,
swears the past was true.



Original watercolor sketch by Sue.
