Madagascar – Lemur


It’s April of 2021 and Day 13 of the A to Z challenge. This year, I am doing the theme – “Travel the World.” I am visiting countries from A to Z and presenting stories with 8 line poems.

Day 13 Country: Madagascar

With ring-tailed, the most known one, there are around hundred different species of lemurs in Madagascar.  They are native only to the island of Madagascar. Lemurs comes from Latin Lemures meaning ghosts or spirits. The mouse lemur is the smallest one and measures less than 27 centimetres. Gaint lemurs, weighing as much 200 kg are all extinct now majorly because of human activity though lemurs are popularly known for adaptations. lemurs play a huge role in maintaining forest diversity, structure and dynamics through the movement of seeds. For no specific reason aye-aye is my favorite and below is an image of that.

Poem:

Scream,
For the day and night,
And a little more,
Walk bare foot,
Feel the wind,
Carry the essence,
Make a chain.
Legacy, is a treasure.

We all need to leave behind something. In-fact, we all do, like it or not.
