Jungle Yard

Passing through the glass, we moved
And watched through glorious eyes.

Arden Lore

Three hundred years before
And still the forest heals its wounds,
From man-made, blazing fire
Sending elders to their tombs.

Atop the branches, Sentries
Sound the battle raging horns,
As humans storm through branches,
Weaving in-between the thorns.

Would set alight the darkening sky,

Within his heart, unbeknownst why,
That always hunted through the night.
