Creature of the Night

Creature of the Night
Photo by Erik Karits on
Silent creature of the night,
Dimly featured by pale moonlight,
Quitely cutting through the dark,
Wisely judging its chosen mark,
Balanced gracefully o’er the ground,
Talons splayed, striking down,
Noiseless attack from out the air,
Helpless prey unaware,
As the sunlight lingers near,
The owl and moon have disappeared.
