The Riverbeasts

Nazmir riverbeasts

What fun to see the riverbeasts

 wading in shallows,

nibbling on waterlilies,

browsing along the banks,

so gentle you can hug them.

They’re complete pacifists –

or so you may think

unless you hug too hard;

then their fury knows no bounds.

Be cool. 

Here again I’m in Nazmir. I do enjoy coming upon a group of riverbeasts, a species that’s surely related to the hippopotamus (a Greek  word meaning “riverhorse”). Hippos are “among the most dangerous animals in the world” and are “highly aggressive and unpredictable” (Wikipedia), unlike the peaceful – unless provoked – riverbeasts.

About Lotus Greene

I started the blog called "Educating Lotus" in 2011, shortly after I began exploring the virtual world Second Life. With friends I met there, I migrated my virtual life to World of Warcraft (WoW) and joined an educators' guild. Lotus Greene is my gamer name, one I kept when I started another blog in 2015 called "Not Quite Ignored," which originally focused on the lighter side of news and now also includes political news and opinions.
