Prey #JusJoJan 2023

Hello! I’ve decided to join in on Just Jot it January hosted by Linda G. Hill. Today’s prompt is “canine” by Dawn.


In the forest 
dark shapes arise
a wolf pack rends the air 
with their song.

Gibbous moon
glowing butterscotch
sets tangerine 
inch by inch. 

Trees shift 
rustle in the air 
the scent of prey
wafts tantalizingly. 

The apex predator
bares its canines
the hunt has begun 
the forest is alive. 

The word canine makes me think of a tiger. I do know that every carnivore has pronounced canines, yet the word always reminds me of a tiger. Maybe because the first book I ever read that featured an infamous tiger…is The Jungle Book! πŸ˜„

Thanks for reading πŸ’•
