green hunters


August 3- August 7 Week 21/72


a book rests open on my lap

words left unread as my attention

is drawn away by the hovering

and darting of brilliant green

dragonflies in fast pursuit of tiny prey

even the harsh, explosive skeow

of an arriving green heron does not deter

them from the task at hand until

suddenly the hunters become hunted

one by one plucked from the sky

with stunning speed and accuracy

of the now silent heron
