How the Hunted Feel

Ancient, silver-boned and majestic

Orion kneels quietly on the night bridge

That links fusion and reflection;

Patiently testing the wind currents,

Feeling the approaching changes,

Knowing for the first time

How the hunted feel

Before the arrow is nocked.

    your thoughts weave the most provoking thoughts within silence..
    of the what is in the night up ahead for me
    I wonder if everyone will experience being the hunted not the hunter
    once or perhaps twice in a lifetime…
    I like this….Thank you for sharing BeeSeeker…
    Take Care…You Matter…

  2. great economy with lots of thought packed into every word, I would probably like to see more of this poem. ie left me hungry for more. What is is like to be a prey animal? What thoughts go through their mind?
