Symphony of the Forest

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Forest Symphony

Forest Symphony

Sweet singing Song Thrush

Dancing leaves

Little breeze

Pitter patting raindrops in leaf cups

A raccoon dash

a beaver splash

Swaying vines making Jungle rymes

Buzzing caught in a silky web

A constrictor squeezes tightly sending it's meal to bed

Thumping of boots, Army ants

Hissing of a slither, monkeys trance.

Pecking on oaks

Loud hoppers croaks

Flapping of wings, up and away a fowl

Dashing and pranging the tiger's growl


A squirrel, scurrying

A skunk Burrows

Crunching leaves

Under a Jaguars feet

Spears soar, African Beats

Rain falls, sun beams, natures love

Hands flap at mosquito buzz

Wind howls

at the nights' reach, bats flight

tiny squeaks.

Grunts and Screams

Predator and meals

The song of the forest, is sweet and mean.

Excuse me, I am sitting on my fallen tree checking it all out.

Hello Blossom, the forest is filled with so many life it would be insane to mention them all. I like the fireflies in the night too. Something about a flash of light in the darkness seems magical.

An evocative poem - but you left out those lovely fireflies that I remember so well as they lit up the jungle around us!
