Evening Now

The howling could be coyote or wolf The screaming is Tasmanian devil or banshee Wait, is there such a thing? I meant bobcat It is evening now Time for the nocturnal creatures to come out in full force The puma, lynx and fox hunt down the prey that does not hide well There are so many creatures, all tasty. Where to begin? Who to eat first? A scream Could have been a bunny or a mouse. Dinner now The moon shows shadows on the forest floor a Luna moth glides by the mosquitoes begin their feeding frenzy Sucking the blood of mammals like tiny vampires Bullfrog begins croaking a bit more loudly Firefly flits around confidently The evening has begun for the night creatures Written 6-5-2022 Poetry Contest: Creatures of the Night Sponsor: Julia Ward
