My manticore is a gho-che-at.
He has the head of a ghost,
the feet of a cheetah,
and the body of a very scared cat.
He runs fast outdoors
with his cheetah feet
hunting for fish and souls
He wears a Hawaiian lei
to say Aloha
Who ever would have thought to put the head of a ghost on a manticore? Only the children from Kapa'a Elementary School. I think this came from the idea that a manticore is a mythical beast. Isn't the creativity wonderful? And then to follow through with the idea that a ghost eats souls. Some thinking is going on. Wonderful! I've never had a manticore poem go in this direction before and I love it. Bright and very creative.
