Hawk II

A flying hatchet:
The shape of the sharp-shinned hawk
Pursues the pigeons.

Hunt

Pierced by falcon claws
Red feathers on the white snow
A cardinal sin.

Peregrine

A swooping gesture:
The hawk’s immediate stoop,
Falconer’s treasure.

For 3 Word Wednesday
gesture, immediate, treasure

Predation

The red dragonfly
quarters an autumn meadow.
Snatch! – the kestrel’s claws.

Hawk

Pigeons and sparrows
Panic into whirling flocks
Pointed wings above.

Ladybug

Smooth-shelled hemisphere,
Candy-colored polka dots,
Beneath: the dark jaws.

Cat

Ears stiff as sailcloth,
Whiskers poised like galley oars,
The hunter embarks.
