The Myth Of The Great Rainforest
Poem By Samiha Issacs
Dark clouds, soft mist. Easy breeze, light drizzle. Sun peaks through endless
trees beyond sight. The feel of soft grass between toes. The light smell of rain
traveling through the scented air. Lost in a trance; a dream. Fireflies scorching
through waters of glistening soft waves. Light sounds of various birds
surrounding the silent midnight sky. The mind wonders in astonishment, and in
joy of the things it’s witnessing. Simply surpassed by the realism of life.
Branches continue to dance amongst the endless skies above. Waterfalls of soft
white clouds pour but without a sound, and reaches the delicate green patches
below. Alone with only a notion of sanctuary, and of hope. Tall trees
whispering, “Hush, hush”, for total silence amongst all being. Brisk leaves
runching above light waves of grass. A galaxy of rainbow colors and creatures
lurking in hollow spaces. These are only descriptions of the beautiful and
mysterious rainforest. And how it all began, will astonish you.
The wind; a strong moving spirit that travels amongst all the creatures living in
this well-adapted area. The rain; which would often pass through this rainforest
in various amounts at a time, while animals strive to survive through harsh
winds. And the wind would flow through this galaxy and dedicate a small gift;
the gift of life. Working with the rain, the wind would create wonderful things
with the help of the creatures living at that time. These mysterious creatures
lurking in shadow spaces were said to be mystical, having unique powers. Such
as the great butterfly; gentle and free. It would have the power of life, allowing
every animal and insect to challenge the quick-bound world of life itself.
Every dawn when a new sunrise would set; this galaxy of dream would have
amazing communication…every part working together, challenging one another,
and creating beautiful forms of life. And as the days grew older, and time grew
short, this extraordinary rainforest grew to an extent of pure life and beauty. In
time, every form of life became known, and an extraordinary unique rainforest
was set to roam the earth forever.
