A Summer Night in Kenya

Dreamer - Mitro

A summer night in Kenya
the animals standing round.
I slip my boat into sea green water
silently making no sound
the water steams in oven heat
the fish too tired to swim
a blood red moon hangs overhead too dim to light the way
but simply languishing  hanging there
as if it's come to play
huge sentinels of enormous trees
come alive with living snakes
as if the night can hide their flight
from tree to tree to bank
forest sounds shatter the night
crackling and hissing with calls of the wild
then I awake it's only a dream
I lay in my bed and smile
