LIVING FOR SIX MONTHS IN THE CONGOLESE TROPICAL RAINFOREST

I WAS BAFFLED BY THE ABUNDANCE OF SOUND 

BROUGHT FORTH BY THE FOREST THAT IS ALIVE

 

CRICKETS, WHISPERING LEAVES, BIRDS & TREES CREAKING

 

THE WORLD OF THE FOREST SEEMED ALMOST NON-VISUAL

THE VISUAL FLOODED BY A SEA OF SOUND

 

I HAD TO LOOK FOR PATHWAYS OF LIGHT

 

SUNLIGHT FALLING THROUGH THE CANOPY

 

A SMALL RAY

TURNING WHAT WAS RUSTLING IN FRONT OF ME

INTO LIGHT
