Writers' Showcase

Zealous Ambition
by Joanna M. Weston

an anxious aardvark
beats baleful beans but
cuts corn cobs carefully

dejected dogfish deep dive
eluding eight elegant eagles

flirting flies feed
gathered gaggling geese
 high heavens hold
incurable infections

jetting jockeys jerk
kissing kindred kirk-wise

linked leftover lambs
might make many meatballs
 near neighbours navigate
oddly occupied octopi

painted ponies park
quietly quaint quarks

rickety riddles ripple
so slender sopranos sing

trapezes tie tightly
under used ukuleles

voices vault vociferous
where worn weapons wage

x-rayed xeric xylographs
yield yummy yogourt
zipping zero zebras zero
