Shadow in the Night

by Dorinda Duclos

Hidden deep, the mystery lies
Lost in the shadow of night
Beneath the wisp of branches
That sway in the full moon bright

A silent swoop of mighty wings
The raptor on a darkened chase
Sating an ever claiming hunger
He’s eclipsed by this woodland place

A flicker of flight against ebony sky
Undetected in the blackened night
The predator with his conquered stash
Disappears with the morning light
