Bamboo Geste cont.

by Lobber

Amidst the monster storm's relentless fray,
Bamboo's curiosity leads the way.
Through open vents he flees, amazed and soaked; 
A tree, his refuge in the storm, provoked.
Lightning striking fiercely, an old tree bows low.
Bamboo leaping with fears from the fiery glow.
Now covered in mud, beneath the thunder's spree,
He dreams of peace in Danielle's reverie.
Randy appears, a steady "raccoon friend" true,
Inquiring about fears and of Bamboo's hue.
Tom Feral's kind words of wisdom, they dare seek,
In the rain's soft embrace and answers that peak.
Tom's wise words, a solace, a guide,
In the storm's fury, Bamboo's pride.
Survivor, Bamboo, humbly bows,
Hair lost, new lessons, he avows.
Subway secrets, Samantha's aid,
Fish scents along his path displayed.
Embarrassment from lessons learned,
Stalking fresh mice, a meat he once spurned.
Another nasty night, storm still roars,
Curiosity, Bamboo explores.
A tumble into a tank unkind,
Samantha rescues, heart intertwined.
Days pass quickly, Bamboo soon bids adieu.
Home he will head with adventures anew.
In Danielle's tender arms, safe and sound,
Hearing storms rumble, as new love is found.
Forgiveness, tender warmth in her embrace,
Bamboo soon finds peace, in familiar grace.
As thunder rolls quickly, a new storm's plea,
Bamboo's new journey, a tale to decree.
