The Night Queen

The Night Queen

A Poem by TTBoy



Nocturnal is she

as the coolness moistens

her prey below

savoring for an afternoon delight

movement is seen at a moment’s

notice from whatever is salivated


With the power and speed

bestowed upon such an ominous being

a prayer is released in the air as

wide as she can reach

Accuracy is key

for not all are answered

Often she guards the gift

until it is one with

the Earth

and her grip

is moistened by the coolness

below her

as she retreats to her sanctuary

with cruel intention


she is…
