ticket to ride!

“Amuse me!” is fair theme at dVerse poets with Lillian spinning our memories.


calliope music

summer sunburn

sticky cotton candy

magical carousel ride

double-decked imagination

a young girl’s fantasy choice:

to trade precious tickets for

high-kickin’ striped zebra,

long-legged white hare

or sleek blue dolphin?

climb in saddle!

scientific classification

The kaleidoscope zebra, Equus exoticus, native to S. Africa, is extinct due to inferior breeding and failed camouflage of its rainbow-hued stripes.
