Red Horizon

by Julie Adams


somewhere between
wallflower
and
panther

slight in movement
if any, covert
eyes dart
back
and
forth

but I rest, waiting
motionless

between stalks
and reeds, streams
of dreams ebb
and
flow
curiosity into
creativity

protagonist
silent
but
deadly type,
3rd millennium woman
hunter, prowling
sans weaponry, noise

fangs sink in
to new book
feeding again
through daybreak¬ó

red horizon
bleeding from the eyes

Wow! Drop me a rope. I think you have reached the pinnacle with this one, Jewels. Superb first and last lines. (The middle ain't too shabby either). Peace...

ah, the soul of the intellectual predator so beautifully bared ...amazing how you captured the photograph in all its clariy, detail and vivid color, Jewels.
