Midnight Hunter

by Barb Hensongispsaca

So quietly she stalks her prey
from her lofty perch overhead.
Her body dark and sleek, still lays,
no movement from her tail to head.

Embracing darkness, she blends in,
can not be seen by prying eyes.
Then sounds that crawl under your skin
from overhead - her screaming cries.

Her killing force is swift and sure,
sharp fangs dive deep - a life is gone.
For now, she ensures a future -
her cubs will see another dawn.
