Tinker Posted August 1, 2017 Share Posted August 1, 2017 Into the Jungle I travel to the land of the veil where maharajas sit on gold thrones fanned by heart shaped palms while sloe-eyed lovelies feed them dates and wine. My trek takes me through the Creator's lush garden on the swaying back of Jasmine an elephant who lifts her trunk to trumpet my arrival Creeping in on me, the dense foliage is green and wet and alive with reptilian eyes, bugs that buzz and bite and flighty butterflies, Skittery things dart in and out, round about, the sweat on my skin vibrates. I want to look into the eyes of a tiger with gold and black striped coat, spear like teeth, the dispassionate eyes that hold contempt for all the beauty that surrounds him. I must see. ~~Judi Van Gorder This just took on a life of its own. Response to a prompt to write about travelling to a place you have never been..
