Wilde Beests

The clamour,

urgency

of this instinctual rush

 

The thunder of hooves,

the roar of movement,

A locomotive

of animal power

 

Drawn

like lead shavings to a magnet,

to be one enormous beast

pulled together and forward

as one mammoth

 

Funnelled

to pour through

a river crossing

in a frenzy

of muscle

a turmoil of limbs

a fury of effort

and agitated water

 

Such is the rush

to greener pastures
