Orangutan in the Rain -- a Flash poem, 55 words
Where o where can my friend be?
I left him under a bush
Bush so big, banana tree
Out in the rain's unpleasant
I do hope he's staying dry
Not much sense has he, poor boy
Now coming in out of rain
All hairs are wet, so is he
Fig leaf doesn't keep one dry

Today I am linked with Kerry O'Conner at Flash 55 Plus,
Kerry's instructions for the PLUS were, "... to look back on the past year by viewing the winners of the National Geographic Photo Contest 2015. (Click HERE) The photos are offered as wallpaper, which may be downloaded free of charge. Please acknowledge the photographer on your site if you decide to use a picture from that source."
