Drafted Giraffe 

Savannah Wind 
Swirls the nape of his neck
Impulsive need to run 

Bare long neck
In half moon circles
Arches back and around

Textured tassels 
From side to side 
Move in unison tossed 

Wind Savannah
Spirit soars 
Fervor surpasses him 

Neck long bare 
Veers out wildly 
Lanky legs flailing 

Tassels textured
Tangled and twisted 
- Wind direction changes

He stops -
Basic drive satisfied.
