If I were a cougar..

Posted to Poetry




If I were a cougar...
I lay in a thicket, wait,
senses wide open, attuned.
flitting flies, rippling grass,
patience belies my inevitable burst.

Atop my favorite rock,
I watch a sea of light below, shimmer,
creep into the hills, closer.
I retreat, for now.
