Beneath Wood’s Darker Veil

They crept by stealth through undergrowth
Dark forest on their heel
Where fear consumed with eerie fright
To chill their nerves of steel

Where spirits lurked and imps took flight
Where none returned who went
Into the wood of evilness
The throne of all torment

And from its depths blood curdling scream
Hung ice still in the air
Despite the heat of midday sun
That shone away from there

The shriek that turned their hearts to stone
That froze the blood in veins
A warning to each one – beware
N’er venture there again

For it is said that in that wood
A werewolf lurks and prowls
To capture, maul, consume each one
Ahead the screech of owls

And none who’ve dared to chance their luck
Have lived to tell the tale
As shape shifter remains at large
Beneath wood’s darker veil

Global Adventures

Sitting in the airport queue
With dreams to go beyond the blue
And visions of adventure new
With flights of fantasy to run through

On camel’s backs o’er desert sand
Where flying carpets come to hand
And watering holes fail to withstand
Droughts ravaging dry the sun scorched land

Or beneath the forest canopy
Deep in the jungle, in the tree
Amidst the monkey colony
A glimpse revealed; a sight to see

And awash upon the ocean wave
Upon the crests in splendour brave
Or amongst the coral reef enclave
A marine voyage to swim and pave

Then on the prairie’s savannah shore
Where grasses stretch for miles before
O’er head on Eagle’s wings to soar
Below roam bison and wild boar

Up high upon the mountain range
With misting air and senses strange
Where icy snow capped peaks arrange
And earth and heaven interchange

Or where glacial climes beset the pole
And iced landscapes outward roll
Where penguins huddled in groups console
Or polar bears across the ice do stroll!

Sitting in the airport queue
With dreams to go beyond the blue
And visions of adventure new
With flights of fantasy so true!
