Quick As A Blink

IGWRT's Fireblossom transforms us into totem animals for her challenge, but showing versus telling is the hardest thing to do - not sure I'll ever get the hang of it, to order, but I fancied feeling owlish today, so here goes...

Predator

Day dazzles me;
my senses twist
in search of night,
whose mysteries turn my head,
listening for your scuttlings...
Are you already fleeing
towards deeper darkness,
overwhelmed by my menace?
Does fear beat the air like wings
as I rise on its lift of excitement?
Hunger takes control
and the hunt is on...

  1. If I could be a bird, it would be an owl.

  2. I love owls. (not being a mouse may have something to do with that!) Thanks for taking on my challenge, Jinksy. Have a great weekend.

    Hunger does rule doesn't it...

    I love this line:
    "Does fear beat the air like wings"

  4. I think you are an owl.

    Otherwise how could you describe it so well?

    Great job.
