COMPOSITION: TRAVEL ESSAY The sky, black in color was very dark on this cold winter night. Out of sight , animal sounds moaned in the distance. Trees, leafless and almost black moved from side to side as the wind roughly blew against them. Silent, separate and pleasantly mysterious, the night was. I was lost and alone in the forest. I followed the orange color I saw in the distance and the smell of smoke. Lit by the orange glow of a fire in the wintertime, a squirrel gently walked past my foot. Its presence almost calmed me of my fear of the mysterious night. White in color , its fur blended in with the snow it crawled in. I bent over, attempting to catch the squirrel with my bare hands. The squirrel, frightened and aware jumped up and ran into the distance. Disappointed and discouraged I sat down near the fire and waited for someone to rescue me. Gazing into the night I became more afraid. Shadows and voices echoed behind me. Cricks and cracks are the sounds I heard from the animals walking in the forest. I stood up, bravely and determined to get out of here. I ran as fast as I could . Rough and icky, the quick sand felt on my skin. I screamed while the sand took my under. I wiggled and squirmed hoping to make a getaway, but only made the situation worse. I grabbed hold of a stick and pulled myself up. I continued running, running from this unusual place that made no sense to me.
