emerging

becoming apparent or prominent.
 

~~~~~~

The sun appears to be

emerging from the earth or sea,

depending on one’s location,

as it rises each morning. 

 

One look at me and these dwarf mongoose

scurried into their anthill home. 

Every now and again some would

pop their heads out to see if I was still there.   

After half an hour of waiting for them

to emerge from the safety of home,

with declining results, I decided to stop wasting

my time, and have a good look at the anthill.

 

Lo! And behold they had an escape route planned

long before I came along.

***

On our last morning in Africa (2013),

I woke earlier than usual

to the sound of breaking branches.

After my eyes became used to the light,

or to the lack thereof,

an elephant emerged out of the gloom,

no doubt on its way to the

Sausage Tree Safari Camp

waterhole.

Whether at Rome’s

huge diversity among visitors.

 

Melbourne has…

…a diverse…

…range of buskers…

…both in type and age.
