Rain Forest

Written by: Phyllis Babcock

The sun's yellow rays filtered though the gray skies
The foliage damp from the previous rain
The humidity clung like a leech would cling to the skin
I could not wipe the dampness away
Sunbeams drenched upon my back
My face became droplets of moisture
Clinging ,with no where to escape
The heat intensifies and the greenery sprung forth
The petals delighting in the new precipitation
As the  rainbow began to fade in the sky
I am walking where life and death hold constant beauty.
