TEASER 1. Hundreds of animals were without water, and they would die the most painful of deaths if it did not rain soon. Any water that remained had turned brackish and brown, and the smell of death seemed to permeate the very air itself. . TEASER 2. Thabo sat up and was thinking of going to see where his father was going when there was a huge, loud bang, and he saw his father come running back into the clearing. He had only gone a few yards and there was a second bang and his father fell to the ground. Seconds later, three assailants ran into the clearing and dragged his father back out into the bush. . TEASER 3. Several of the other hyenas left the lion and joined in. They attacked his legs; Josh was still alive and trying to kick at them as the first hyena completely tore away his arm and ran a few yards away to protect his meal. The blood was pumping out of the awful gaping wound, and this just excited the already blood-thirsty hyena. . TEASER 4. Daylight was approaching, and they could see two male lions and five or six cubs, but no sign of any females. Presumably, they were out hunting for their hungry brood. This was the very area that Yark carried out his illicit lion hunting expeditions, and they had brought him here.

He is life,
A great, mystical tree,
Symbolic in nature,
Eternally free.
She is root,
Hidden, deep below,
With a foundation enduring,
She is a mystery to know.
Combined is the essence of Him.
Revealed is the depth of love Divine,
Captured, perfectly, over a history of time.
Good and bad,
Back to their own identity.
As it was in the garden,
The One tree of serenity.
