It was the night felt eerie~

I could feel it down to my bones~

The cold cruel world in which I~

Un-intend-ly roamed.

The coyote was slinking nose to ground~

As he figured a way to go~

I realized he meant me no harm.

The moon draped the forest with a grey green light~

It was so hard to make sure nothing of danger neared~

I stood frozen with anticipation reared!

The silence was so quiet a face~

To show would had been a fright~

I held my breathe hushed to be detect less~

On this very uncanny night!

The coyote moved on as if he chored the area~

To his unspoken business he hustled along~

Almost ghostlike his coloring strangely gave him up~

I made sure my presence did not he I disrupt.

The trees were so tightly packed their tops out of sight~

Stars could not reveal their muted plight. ~

I could not help to be alarmed~

Using my eyes to search everywhere~

As I was defenseless~

Not wanting to be caught unaware!

The lake was there but veiled in the dark~

A pointless thought went thru my mind~

Imagining a supernatural being sucking~

Me into the sinister waters~

My body froze until my thoughts altered.

The coyote disappeared as it slipped into dense trees~

He left me more alone than I first imagined~

Now I voiceless~

A peculiar chill came rushing over me!

I show my light to slip away with no incidence~

I am grateful for the peace that washes over as~

I sneak past my fear. ~

Quicker I move my pace to up my speed~

Racing away the scary feelings this~

Night brought over me.

An emotional and expressive work. It is felt in its eerie sensations and the detail in the environment, is quite spell binding. Well done, my friend. whonu
