Raptor

 

“Raptor” – Digital

Poised and alert
Perched on bare branch
Surveying terrain
Looking for a chance.

Such is the order of things.

Next to my door he lands
Looking for innocent prey.
Raptor examines shrub
Will he find entrée?
Into bush he flies.
Out flies sparrow
Another bush for cover
Escape was narrow.

Such is the order of things.

Two crows chase and harass
From one tree to another
About as big as he
But not his brother.
“This is our domain.
You’re not welcome here.”
But he wants to stay,
It is very clear.

Such is the order of things.

Villain, no.
Only hungry hawk
Silent…
As we gawk.

Such is the order of things.
