Night Shift in the Wild of Guyana

By Dmitri Allicock

The fading light of Guyana’s dusk turns gray
Night creatures awake without any delay
Noisy life cheers, canopy shadows dance
Celebrating and willing to take a chance
I in the bright hours, thou in shadow-time
I must now heed nature’s chimes  

The deafening metallic whirr of a 6 o’clock Bee piercing the countryside and wilderness of Guyana, summons a menagerie of creatures that slither and leap with loud cacophony as the day’s last light paints the tropical sky.  The tiptoeing twilight brings out nocturnal creatures and calls of the wild with natural adaption for survival beneath the dark canopy of the rainforest and that damp slipperiness of which some nightmares are made of.
