Midnight Eyes. - Poem by Geoffrey Fafard

Those that walk through the jungle
The thick wet impenetrable forest
In the dark hours of night
Looking for something to talk to and
Are aware that there are plenty
That dwell in this place,
Eager and willing to chat and look
Eyes stare and wonder at this visitor
Droplets of news hang off teeth
Warmth of fur waiting in crevices
Songs of the night sung under the moon
Musky odour of the unseen
Imagination sipping at dark corners
Unknown hosts waiting to converse
Or get up close and personal
Touch, feel, lick, smile in the black dim light.
————
We welcome brave visitors yes
To this world of the midnight moon
Full of mossy perfume
And heady forest scents
Smiles reflect in the midnight eyes
Come on, come to this world
Bring your attitude
Bring your bravery by all means
And you know we will sort it
Midnight eyes have the skills
Oh yes ‘ol mate we will fix
And repair with joy
All your little problems.

    The influence of the written word Susan...! I love the forest and jungle day or night and I even frightened myself in this instance. Ha ha. Thank you for your comments, =.Geoffrey.
