NaPoWriMo Day #10: Silver Winged Predators

D.L. Lang at Golden gate Brige

Today’s prompt is to write an unlove poem.

Silver Winged Predators

The hawk preys on pigeons innocent in belief and thirsty for adventure.
He encircles them with wings majestic hallowed by dark ominous clouds.
The pigeon enraptured, hypnotized, blinded….and swallowed.
But for the sole pigeon who in depths of darkness and despair cried out,
Pried open the clenched jaws of bitterness to fly free, refusing fate’s digestive goal.
Flying free from the snake’s venom, the cat’s razor blade claw, the kleptomaniac seagull,
And the hiss of starving emaciated ducks, the pigeon now soars far above ever strengthened.
