Island Adventure

here in the heart of the island
our adventure begins
cool sand follows our steps
as we greet the undergrowth

shadows loom close now
as we near the path unknown
cool is our journey as we walk this path
I know not the way but we struggle on

this island holds secrets profound
In the distance I hear the softness
of falling water
water, life giving water

it is here I will wait and
hope for rescue amid palms and vines
ever waiting for a sign of life
among the tall grass

sand digs deep my path
shade in the distance
wet leaves crushed beneath
