i ran into the almond brown forest

and heard the sound of screeching jays

coming from above and i bent down

to grab some nuts and berries that tasted

so heavenly in my mouth then

i began to climb the trees that

appeared as tall as skyscrapers and

when i came down i made a fortress

out of the logs and leaves

while the sound of crunching twigs

came from under my feet
