Twilight Gathering (Simply 6 Minutes)

A beautiful sonnet to share

Jezzie G

Inspired by and written for Simply 6 Minutes – thank you, Christine

Form: Elfin Stanza Sonnet

In twilight skies a thousand wings take flight
And pesky insects become hunted prey
Leathery wings shadow the dying day
With each a silhouette in fading light

And some swooping low to catch the first bite
Of the juicy flies who have lost their way
A tasty meal, there’s no feeling contrite
And back into the dark night those wings sway

Radar ears pick up where the midges play
With their poor vision still they need no light

For sound alone guides them on the right way
And insects can’t hide from this sonic sight
And on these warm evenings of late May
I sigh as I watch the bats at twilight

Time: 7 minutes 20 seconds

Word Count: 112
