Back in my Homeland by ElenaBoosy Back in my Homeland by ElenaBoosy
Goodness, this brings back old memories,

Ones of a land barren of trees.

Long before I appeared in my first episode,

I lived with my family in our humble abode.

My parents worked hard in order to provide,

And to send me to where I currently reside.

I need to go visit one of these days,

Back to where I once was able to graze...


This is a gift for ~Rhyming-Zecora, who is so kind to write these little poems

I have something in my fanfiction about Zecora's African homeland. She has a nemesis that is a male Cheetah. THey have been enemies since they were a foal and a cub. This Cheetah likes to call himself Ultracheetah and will stop at nothing to eat Zecora. He has the same Swahili accent as her, speaks the same language (Swahili) and also speaks in rhymes when speaking a different language

Beautiful scene. Zecora is so adorable there!

And yeah, I'm sure she's missing her family and her homeland at times; but on the other hand, she always struck me as the travelling kind, the one who never truly settles down anywhere, who always wants to see what's beyond the horizon, and who always eventually ends up feeling that same ol' wanderlust again. She may be living in Ponyville now, and maybe she will for a long time to come, until she feels that her work is done and she's not needed anymore there, but I think she will move on then.

Maybe she'll even return home some day, and reunite with her family.

You have some nice rhyming skills, how long does it usually take you to make these rhymes?

:iconrhyming-zecora:
Rhyming-Zecora Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012
To make a short rhyme like this one, it took me 3 min,

And with pictures I've got to find some way to begin.

For my rhymes that I do for all mlp shows?

1 or 2 hours is normally how it goes.

For example, the one that I just did today,

Took me two hours (which is quite the delay.)

Did you have some sort of training for this, or were you just born with the natural talent of rhyme?

I defanatelly think Zecora was intended orginally to be the teacher of twi but got bumped due to other plans. Still think that she would make a good teacher for the mane 6. So far the mlp staff have done a good job of doing something with Zecora. Man i really wish they'd do more with her. Alas it might not be for another 4 - 8 weeks. :shrug:

Love it! The series only teased the idea of a wider pony world with the reference to the ponies from Saddle Arabia. During the Apple Family Reunion I kinda hoped they'd show a Japanese pony named Fuji. This is still great, though.

Zecora seriously needs an episode one of these days... and I mean a backstory episode, not Bridle Gossip. The fact that she can do some form of magic (as seen in Magic Duel) and she has something akin to a cutie mark is too interesting.
