Singing Beast

I once met a singing beast
as I was walking through the forest.

His voice sounded like
a bird song,
awakening me from
a peaceful night’s sleep.

He stood behind a tree,
calling out to me,
and I followed
his sweet sound.

Up the hills and
across the rivers I went
only to stare into the face
of death.

-Jowelle M.
