365 Days of Writing – Day 41

Chyula Hills

Volcanic peaks rise into the
thin, mist shrouded air
that benefited Kenyan olypians
cheetah like flashes
running through the bush
for survival
for medals

Red molten ground
sustains
antelope, gazelle, leopard,
zebra, giraffe,
water buffalo, hippo, baboon,
elephants
gaze unfazed at four wheeled,
multiple scented, multiple heartbeat, multiple eyed beings

Masai warriors
in brightly hued fabrics
adorned with beaded collars, bracelets, anklets
stand guard
fierce totems of ancient ritual
One hand holds a sacred spear
One hand holds a cell phone
