A Day in the Life

in India’s heat the spoors of a lone creature. . . leading to water in a shallow pool the solitary beast bathes. . . sun pours down golden a lame gaur wanders near the tall yellow grasses. . . the crouching tiger around the carcass two females join in to feed. . . benevolence reigns racing with shadows as dusk steaks the orange sky. . . the Bengal tiger Written 7/29 for Shadow Hamilton's New Contest Tigers Living Free

for those who wondered. I looked up gaur, and it looks kind of like a cross between an ox and a moose.

You have described a scene in such a wonderful way. The streaks in the orange sky are just like the stripes on the beast. We live in a wild world. We've only tamed it temporarily.
