The Sounds of the Trail

As the trail steepens
the breeze whistles,
the branches creak…
then the leaves rustle.

Suddenly the birds sing
I even heard crickets chirping
I think from behind the bushes
I heard a hissing.

I could really hear
my heart pounding…
my joints cracking…
my muscles popping…

So I decided to rest
then the huffs
the puffs…
Stopped.

I have two websites and two YouTube channels where I publish my works in my areas of interest. I also use Wattpad and Pinterest to publish my creative works. I am into research as well. Some of my articles were presented at conferences and published in indexed-journals. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
