My first expedition

The distant sound of the dying ape’s last cries echoing ominously was a painful reminder of the predators following my every step. Mosquitoes buzzed loudly, and the sweat that dripped from my head added to the itchiness of my bites. Leeches littered the floor along with puddles of blood which oozed down my legs. I had a tough twig in my hand as I tried to peel off the remaining leech which continued to suck greedily at my blood. I grunted when at last the leech fell to the ground and squirmed there angrily as it was flicked away from its warm feast. I gazed in despair at my gruesome blood specked legs and wrapped them both with gauze after applying some soothing cream. I picked up my things and slipped them into my sack silently cursing the leeches which clung on to my legs after wadding through a murky pool of water. After padding for a few hours in the vast hot jungle. A few monkeys chattered loudly as they swang from tree to tree.

The jungle of echoes

~The jungle of echoes~

The rustle of the green leaves in the vast jungle echoed menacingly,

The glowing eyes of predators flashed and glinted threateningly.

The snapping of weak twigs fill the jungle with a frightening sound,

Unwanted attention was bound to be found.

Darkness engulfs the shivering creatures with evil contempt,

One wont dare leaving the sheltering trees they wont even attempt.

For as soon as the sun sets evil takes over,

The sun’s feeble light diminishing like dew drops on clover.

The dew’s shining surface like the jungle’s glistening leaves,

But the evil darkness wont rest for they were thieves.

They gaze at the moon with eyes shining with hate,

Wishing the moons silver light was easy to take.

But the darkness could not threaten the moon’s light,

They swarmed around it enviously glaring at it with evil spite.

They glared at the bright stars in enmity,

Swarming around them jealously.

Like a swarm of black bees,

But as the warm sun climbs the now pink sky.

They screeched in protest and deny,

But grinned triumphantly as the moon disappeared.

But their once ugly sneer turned to sheer horror as the last rays of darkness were cleared,

The spat curses and threats of revenge.

But none of them was close to offence,

So they just sank into a prickly silence.

After swearing they will return like a virus,

Invading the calm blue sky.

And promising the end of the world….

Peace at sunset

 

~Peace at sunset~

 

The waves of the great lake lapped peacefuly at the pebbly bank

An amber light of dying fire burned feebily as the ball of fire painfuly sank

into the dark black lake

Its surface dazzled brightly and sleekly as if it were fake

It changed from the threatening black to a chirpy yellow

The surface changed to crimson as the sun sunk, warm and mellow

Water glowing in a painful red brought fear to the flying birds

who sqreeched in alarm and confusion that formed no words

But as the last thretening red rays were swallowed up in the lake’s murky depths

leaving the quickly changing lake dark and peaceful

Letting the moon rise and the stars shining gleeful

Their frosty light lightening the blank sky

Echoing the moon that floated so high

The night animals glanced around the lake cautiously

Wondering when it will stop changing its imagery

But the beautiful lake never stopped

Because as soon as the sun drooped

The whole scene changed instantly

A blazing fire to a glowing crimson

A thretening black to glowing yellow that glistened

And again and again it changed day and night dark or light

This is how it has alway been and how it will always be forever…

The endless rolling hills

 

~The endless rolling hills~

 

A soft playful breeze whispered through the endless green

Carrying the heather’s tunes to the unseen

leaving the sky blue and clear

Spreading the sun’s rays far and near

Hares skipped around the vast green space

Not knowing where the earth will cease

Their sleek glossy fur like the feathers of geese

Keeping the fast growing grass at bay

Hiding in their burrows when the rain’s wet spray

Arrives with the once playful breeze

They huddle in the tunnles that echo with sneeze

Waiting for the glum stormy clouds

To take their thunder and raining crowds

Hoping it will pass briskly and swiftly

Knowing when the rain stopped was no mystery

For the loud sharp pounding stopped instantly

Leaving the sky clear once more

The loud thunder crashing sound no more

And at the center of the soggy moor

Was the best sight

The beautiful rainbow…
