Wilderness Man

araucana chick

Oh my, Joshua has struck again.  Perhaps you remember when he held this darling fluff-ball in his hands.  Now look at my wild and crazy guy.

Of course, this tiny snake is nothing compared to the creatures that Joshua has handled in the past.

Scorpion found in my house

Real men aren’t afraid of a scorpion.  Nope.

Copperhead in a bucket

Or copperheads.

Rattlesnake close-up

Certainly not rattlesnakes.  Sakes, no.

He usually places them in a lidded bucket and hauls them to the far corners of Ft. Benning, where they can live out the rest of their lives peacefully — perhaps wrapped around the leg of an unsuspecting private.

I have a wild man living at my place

Holding crocs and snakes and beasts up to his face

My husband has never faltered, never blinked, or stopped in fear

The world may never know what he is capable of doing here

While others watched Crocodile Hunter: Steve Irwin

Every single scary creature he caught, calmed, and set free again

Just like my wild man.

It’s okay to have identity crisis and think you you are a poet, right?
