Power of the African Wild…

The African sun beating down on my face
Flushed with excitement, my heart thumping with fear
Trips to the national park an adventure, not one to forget
Watching the elephants majestic in their gait
Gentle giants going about their way
Sometimes the golden glimpse of the lions
Hidden amongst the jagged rocks
A sight enough to send shivers down my spine
The beauty of the landscape so deceptive
harshness hidden under every grassy cover
Gazelles with lithe bodies always ready for flight
And buffaloes strong and dark against the afternoon sun
The cynical laughs of the hyenas in their packs 
As if to question the human presence
A memory imprinted upon my mind
The unforgettable power of the African wild
