Day 4: Horrid Creatures – Poem

A creature so horrid, so deformed, that it could not possibly exist in this world.

Yet, such a creature lay before me, still withering in its deathly spasms

Though its body was grotesque – its meat was plentiful

I had many reservations eating such a thing

Not only of its hideous appearance,

its rat-like tail and gruesome fangs,

And gruesome fangs,

but also for what it had devoured before its capture

Day 3: Luminescent Plants – Poem

All natural light is gone,

Save for a speck of precious yellow glow in the distance

Streaking between the branches above

Yet, the forest is illuminated

Glowing in different shades of purple

Some in light blue

Like a cave

I do not dare to stare directly at these luminescent plants

Who knows what they are made of

What they are capable of
