Carnivorous pitcher plants on top of Mount Roraima from a google dot com search


RORAIMA PITCHERS
The lure of red in this surreal pliant
Mystify insects as if by magic chant
They lose their way
For as best they may
Into the stomachs of the pitcher plant

RORAIMA PITCHERS © gillena cox 2015


Written for Hannah's prompt
Transforming with Nature's Wonders
Imaginary Garden With Real Toads
where the focus is Mount Roraima, and the landscape where Venezuala, Brazil and Guyana meet. Some of the oldest geological formations on earth, dating back to some two billion years ago in the precambrian.
