Along The Jungle Fringe

Rating: 5.0
I waited alone by the jungle fringe
It was just before the break of dawn
The shadows of the night were slowly tinged
To announce the coming of the morn

In the distant dark sound of rattling spines
A porcupine going home was running late
His foraging done having fed and dined
Scampered with haste to his waiting mate
The incessant chorus of the dark had ceased

A wonderful poem, I quote: The owl of course had disappeared Long before the sun lit up the sky. But I did not see her nor did I hear In stealth and silence she had flown by

Beautifully penned. It's like a change of guards as the nocturnal retire and others awaken at daybreak in the jungle. Love it Loke :) ....10

“In the distance far a sow I spied leading her young to safe cover nearby. Trailing behind was the boar that had tried, to gain her attention which she denied.” my favorite stanza so far (above) , BUT some boar must have gotten her attention once at least, unless she was sleeping through it. was it YOUR blood the leeches and mites were enjoying? like the rhyming. to MyPoemList I’m a sucker for jungle poems, especially ones done so well. to MyPoemList. oops! i said that already. bri :)

Very nice nature poem. It gives a good image. I also give you a 10. You seem to like limericks. I have submitted only 1: Hiking Limerick.

You seem to be a close observer of Nature! Yes, as the night gives way to dawn, it is so interesting to see a forest coming back to life after an interim of silence! The wild life is beautifully described! In the distant dark sound of rattling spines, a porcupine going home was running late. His foraging done having fed and dined, scamper with haste to his waiting mate. A very catchy shot! Enjoyed the poem altogether!
