Danger

Sheep bleating sundown Wolves lurk furtively in packs Moans of dying voices warn. Shepherd alert now Danger to his frightened flock Brings crude weapons to ready. Submitted to "BITE SIZE POEM #7" Poetry Contest Sponsored by Line Gautier

Shepherds tending their sheep, knowing danger was always out there. You painted the picture. Nicely done.

Your sedoka paints a vivid picture of wolves lurking, danger and caution. Well imagined.

Thanks, Robert. The poem came first, then while reworking it, it became a sedoka. A fun write, anyway.
