Yellow Eyes

Every Life is a Memoir

Ilker - Cat Eyes Freeimages.com/Ilker

Yellow eyes creep out of the night

Eyes glow in the perilous darkness

Silky black fur glistens in droplets of moonlight

Velveted paws glide over the forest floor without a sound

Sharp shoulders stop suddenly

Eyes widen

Muscles twitch and ripple like a secluded lake recently disturbed

Ears focus like radar on a battleship

All is still.

A tail flicks in anticipation as a driver would rev his engine before a race

A flutter in the trees – the starting gun has been fired

A lunge

A crash as weak branches and wet leaves give way

A flash of death in the moonlight

Silence

Yellow eyes sulk back into the night
