He walked past the narrow, green tree with a gleeful look on his black face. His round eyes bulged as a couple of younger bodies raced past him to the meal. He wasn’t sure how much further it was, but he knew it was coming up soon. Rumor was that the feast wasn’t too far from the hill, and he’d passed that hill quite a while back, so with that though his old legs kept walking, heading towards what would probably be his last meal. But as he meandered, he thought of the abundance in his life, the meals, the family, everything.
As he made his way through the thick forest, he spotted it up ahead; a golden, sticky substance that was melting under the blazing sun. His dark skin sizzled as his taste buds jumped to life. Regaining the last bit of his energy, he jogged the rest of the way to cold heaven, sinking his teeth in deep until his lips went numb. As he chewed, he noticed dozens of other family members gathering around, enjoying themselves as pleasurably as he was. They all dove in, getting what they could, and yet moving out of the way for others, as nature had embedded in them to do. After all, there was plenty to go around.
