Exercise from U3A group
I was so hungry, I thought I could gobble the light that came bursting through the trees, piercing the darkness. I felt as if I could chase it through the maze and finally swallow it whole. It was like a golden ball, that I thought would slide down my throat and warm me from the inside. What deception we inflict on ourselves! I must have been delirious, after so many days wandering there, lost, cold and starving.
