The Hunters Guide

Written by: Jennifer Cahill

Light sifts through the crinkled foliage,	 
As the shadows mimic the gentle sway and flutter of the leaves	 
For the full yellow white moon has risen.	 
 	 
Cascading waters, embraced by the grassy banks,  	 
Capture the shimmering gleam, like a diamond bracelet	 
Wrapped around a woman’s wrist	 
 	 
A nesting bird wears its luster	 
On its grey speckled wings,	
Tucked to sleep.
