This poem was based on the recent adventurings of Mr. G.D. Falksen where he was in Australia and he encountered a Cassowary. As an amateur bird-watcher this did hold some sentimental value for me. Mr. Falksen explained this on Livestream where he has been reading and doing some Q&A from his "Ouroboros Cycle" series. The title the Green Egg comes from the fact that Cassowary egg's are a bright green color. Feedback always appreciated.

The Green Egg 08/16/2013

Silence.
The air carries an aura of quiet.
Prints of various beasts mark the ground.
Predator.
Prey.
Its all here in the jungle.
Underneath the palm fronds.
I seek the most elusive.
Along the river's stream.
You can see the bright gleam.
Of what lies hidden in the mists.
An egg of most green.
