OctPoWriMo Day 4, The Watcher

Updated: because I evidently can’t count. šŸ˜€

Just one day to catch up on OctPoWriMo. Not too bad. Since I gave you a posting about cannibal cobras yesterday, I will continue with alliteration today, but with a poem about a not strange creature.

The Watcher

the feeder hushes

squirrels blithely snatch peanuts

unaware of the razor-sharp stare

between the willows lance leaves

crows caw, chases, the watcher lifts

wings wide whoosh of air.
