I'm not much for running and screaming when faced with the inevitable.





The fifty foot
Raptor
Broke the
Top off the
Old farmhouse.

Bright eyes
Interested,
Innocent,
He studies
The inhabitants,
Stoics facing the
Beak of Nemesis,
Who shake their heads
& mutter,
“It figures.”

Gad. Chillingly imaged, vividly penned ... can feel the brush of raptor wings reading these lines, Juliet. Well done! And I thought turkey buzzards were big. Nah. Just a pipsqueak compared to a 50 foot bird of prey ...

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Oh, I LOVE this. Of course. I can feel his beady eye(s) on me as I type. EEEEEEEEEK!

Hugs,
Zilla

Those innocent eyes may be considering what to have for breakfast. That fifty-foot raptor would easily gulp down some puny human thinking it is a fat tasty blood sausage. Sort of puts us powerful humans in perspective. There's a lot going on here. One thing I saw was that us humans are not the masters of the universe.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 11/2/2009
Love the descriptives in this one Juliet...well done.

Juliet,
A striking metaphor...raptor and hapless yet stoic 'inhabitants' and the governance of the great Murphy. Powerful, original writing. Yes!

Reviewed by Regis Auffray 11/1/2009
Interesting perspective and substance to stop and think about, Juliet. Love and best wishes,

Regis
