Gorillas, Ruanda

“... our guides had stopped, I peered ahead to see…
That the eyes of a gorilla stared directly back at me!
The gorilla – I was speechless, I could see why experts say
That they’re three percent away from sharing all our DNA.
I was glad I had my camera there, attached upon my wrist
When we turned into a field with more gorillas in the midst –
I cannot stress enough how human-like these creatures seemed;
I guess they really almost are (just overlook the fur)
The seven that we’d found, they were without a doubt the most
Majestic and amazing creatures I’d ever seen up close.”
