BoliviaTuichi River In The Amazon — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Downriver, the jungle fog slowly lifts
Water still murky from heavy rains
Two days earlier in the upriver hills
Making jungle roads almost impassible
To our reaching an indigenous community.

After a meal prepared by Padro’s family
Under a thatch-covered shelter, we
Walked through a field of cattle
Watching suspiciously at a distance
A quick turn of the head, glancing back.

Arriving at the river shoreline before
Completion of the bamboo rafts
We watched our indigenous crew
Finish preparing our transportation
On what would be my Amazon mistress.
