DWP - Prompt : Creatures in the Night (Two Haiku's)

A master of flight
Poised on a branch high above
Searches for a meal

A mouse scampers past
Rustling the dry leaves, heads turn
A Death Owls banquet

  1. Creatures In the Night:

    In the dead of the night, soft moans were released in the distance and echoed down the hall. Each grew increasing prominent with every nearing scuffled step. My bedroom door slowly creaked open. A huge silhouette scaled the wall. As it crept around the corner of my bed watching my every move, another entered from behind, clawed it's way onto the bed, and set perched hovered over me. Unsuspectingly, I gasped in terror. One by one, they emerged from the darkness. "Mommy, I can't sleep."
