Glowing eyes in the

Night trained on scurrying feet

The hunter and prey.

  1. I love this piece!

    It really sets the scene of an animal being chased but also on the perspective of the predator of how it’s skilled and knows exactly where to strike when needed. Like in my head I have glowing yellow eyes scanning the forrest waiting for prey to make itself known in the form of leaves crunching.

    Love the imagery!

    1. I do love Unsplash for my photos; just like the blogs hiding out there, so many amazing photographers share their work on the site for free!

      I have always written the poem first and then gone hunting for the image. Sometimes what I choose brings a whole new meaning to the piece. 🙂
