Title: black into black

Animal: Bat

emerge from the caverns, from black into black

rush forth from the ground, seeking sustenance we lack

a flutter in darkness, we blot out the moon

call, cry, repeat; return echos, our tune

gliding on the wind, we are predator and prey

we feed, fly like furies, this night is our day

wings outstretched, teeth and claws gleam

as the sun rises, we vanish, like dreams

The End
