Pink Zebras

Pink Zebras

Pink Zebras

 

The head gardener had always been
enormously in touch with his creative 
aplomb. This was widely known.
 
He dressed unlike others of his kind, 
stitching wild patterns and colors,
textures together for work, and play.
 
In his saunters along the bends of 
his land’s brackish banks he found a
gift left him by his jolly friends the otters.
 
Inspired, he took to feeding great rafts
of snowdrops with this windfall of tiny
brine shrimp. They grew enormously
 
robust, some reaching dizzying
heights of feet above the ground.
But instead of snowy, the drops
 
grew pink. Ahhh, thought he, so
lovely. Unbeknownst to him, the
zebras who feasted on the rosy
 
drops way in the back field also
took on the flush of the flamingo.
Pink stripes now marked their
 
hides—which they just couldn’t
hide, and the gardener was even
more delighted. Grand!, he declared.
 
Soon the daffodils and narcissus,
the dandelions were taking on rose 
colored hues, likewise, the bees who
 
sipped their sweet pinkness. All was
a wonder to the gardener, besotted
with what he saw. The sun was as
 
delighted by what he beheld, and like
the cuttlefishes he adored, he turned his
golden beams into a soft scarlet in a blink. 
 
As he turned, the bluebirds of happiness
took on vivid purples and violets in the 
largess of his ample rubescent gaze.
 
With this, even the rainbows appeared
altered in their frequencies, casting spells
in shades of thralling heavenly delight.
 
And the land grew mellow and dreamy.
All experienced the pink enchantment,
even the wildebeest and pollywogs. 
 
But it was when the unicorns, who kept
careful cover during the span of day, 
emerged as soft pink as the eden rose,
 
that the whole ranging garden bowed 
to the wizened gardener for his willingness
to use the magical wand of his heart to
 
turn the world they’d come to know
into a place of ever changing, ever
unfolding marvels of possibility.
 
Holy guacamole!, thought the gardener.
He’d no idea that all of this could grow
out of one so small as a slip of shrimp.
