A Poem a Day (21) - Hunted


Morning! Today's 5-minute poem is inspired by the prompt from Robert Lee Brewer in the Reader's Digest April PAD Challenge (day 9). The prompt is hunted or hunter.

Here's my effort -



Hunted

Beneath the curved moon’s stare
She runs

Livid in the ice-cold touch
Of air’s fingers
She turns

Lithe limbs burning,
Her mind sets on nothing
But the escape -
She dashes

Silver in the distancing,
The silent shimmer
Of the lake entices -
Knowing, panting, slipping,
She leaps

Into the dark, inviting depths.
Chill water cascades,
Dipping her ears,
Coating the twitching whiskers -
Flicking the droplets
She swims
