The Rainforest

By:Arnav J.

As I venture through the leafy darkness

The trees start to encompass me in a cocoon.

I feel the breath of hundreds of animals and plants

The birds chirpings are the annoying alarm clock that spreads throughout the forest.

Cute critters creep through the giant green grass munching on food

Dashing birds dive into the dense grass to snatch the unsuspecting prey.

My forehead felt like a waterfall as I discovered the harshness of the sun

I pleaded for an end to the drone of the chattering noises.

It then dawned on me the need for everything

The animals and plants collaborate to achieve something greater than themself

The selflessness inspired me like water to a parched man.

As I left, nature became a part of my journey to experience the world.
