Botswana beckoned with a Chobe-river sunset cruise. Drifting lazily on a boat watching wildlife appear on the river bank peeping between tall foliage was breathtaking. Elephants taking their last drink midst hippos and crocodiles swimming by drew gasps of wonder. The day’s fatigue evaporated in the glow of a fiery orb playing hide-and seek with a cluster of trees leaning over to touch the water lapping on serenely. The sky, a symphony of eye-popping color signified the end of the day. This sacred moment was a reason t to adore Mother Nature inspiring an upward mood swing. A blend of reds, orange, and yellow splashed across the world mirrored in the calm, glossy water now instantly candy colored. Thhe hush of evening hung low interrupted intermittently by an Afrrican Jakana walking bird walkingr across the water on flimsy floating greens What a perfect conclusion to a God filled day! +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Special thanks to Victor Reyes for formatting today's poem.
