The Ride Through the Forest

Published April 22, 2017 by tapasmi

Ochre sky and warming rays

Thawing into the dense haze

Stretched as far as eyes can see

Lies mesmerizing forestry

Bathed in sunlight, shielded faces

Scent of leaves the air traces

Swaying in the gypsy ride

Eyes darting from side to side

The cemented road, in some time

Melts into raw path of compact grime

Our voices hush as we explore

The abundance of nature galore

Trees extending up into the sky

With hives of bees scattered high

Nails of bears carved onto the trunks

Ripping the combs into syrupy chunks

Dappled light under the leafy awning

Sandy hills of termites spawning

Monkeys grooming as they gibber

Birds curled on twigs while they chipper

Foliage rustling by whistling wind

The trail we travelled slowly thinned

Rolling away from the verdure

Into a breath-taking moor

A savannah carpeted with grass

Strands with hue of faded brass

The wheaty threads cast on the lea

Dry, yet filled with life and felt so free

For miles across, their bewitching dance

Left me enchanted by nature’s trance.

Extinction

Some animals that I know of

Are today nowhere to be found

Like the dinosaur and the dodo

Neither any longer tread this ground.

There are many more such creatures

Like the Woolly Mammoth or Steller Sea Crow

Or the majestic Sabre-toothed tiger

Or  even the Penguin Great Ark now.

Now to an eager mind like your

The question is probable to arise

Where have all these animals gone?

What made them all bid goodbye?

I’m sorry to tell you this my friend

But mankind is the real cause

We have chopped off trees and poached them

We sold their bones, teeth, and claws.

And slowly all these species had

No way to any longer survive

And the same is endangering more

So we must change and realise!
