Reads like a good contender to me for the contest. Way to go. I am sure that its prey felt it was time to pray but does a cormorant know about death and the hereafter? I enjoyed reading your work. Thanks for the visit to my page. Your comment was uplifting. Sara

Two in a row about birds of prey seeking their evening meal... wonderful! Excellent imagery in haiku form. I am suddenly hungry for a fish sandwich, lol. Great writing, best wishes in the contest ~ John

Happy you liked this one, John! I watch the birds by our sailboat a lot…they are obsessed with fishing for their food, of course!
