Solemn Seduction - for contest

Solemn Seduction – for contest


soft winds are swallowed
by my wings
stolen
as the breath of lovers
waiting

unblinking eyes seducing
darkness
prying truth from camouflage

rotations of twist top head
listening for the silent
in silence

clinging to a white birch perch
moonlight’s searchlight
shifting shadows
nuances
of prey

soft wings and sleepy eyes
floating focus
beneath the star strewn sky

talons tensing in descent
striking
without pick-up line
the owl’s loft
for dinner

Well, Eve, Personification gives the muse a chance to play "dress up", close her eyes, and imagine. Thanks for the great theme in this one.
