Jungle Deep

(Dedicated to the jungle of Pench)

Ambling down, a moonlit town
at zero in the night
people asleep, in slumber so deep
ignoring all those beautiful sights
In jungle deep a placid lake
scatters the silver of a rising moon

crickets in reeds singing merrily
in somniferous tunes
Hiding itself in brown and grey
a carnivore lurks to catch its prey
intermittent calls of the jungle pals
alarming others-Beware! don't fall
life stands still, the air gets filled
with an engrossing thrill

and a lonesome man, ambles down
the Jungle deep
