A Risky Adventure

cypress swamp serenity april 7

Excitement filled my thoughts

walking around every bend

it was a risky venture

from the beginning to the end

 

Shadows lurked as I 

maneuvered through the swamp

fearless creatures lurked

each with its own want

 

Carefully walking 

there is a sudden howl

bright yellow eyes

it was an owl

 

Darkness is coming

there is a stillness in the air

any sudden movement

could cause me to be ensnared

 

Voices around the corner

there is a small light

coming around the corner

turning to the right

 

Suddenly there is a presence

out of thin air

I jumped so high

screaming with a flair

 

Full moon above

someone has given me a fright

a handful of campers

enjoying Halloween night
