Flight of Sacrifice

Updated on March 29, 2017

Head turned,

ear pointed to the ground,

She listens.



Her silent prey,

oblivious to the search

of this predator,

languishes in the ground.



A stab of precision

guided by millions

that came before her

brings them together.



She springs,

a graceful beast of flight

returning home.



Her waiting brood

waits impatiently.

Blind to her needs,

they demand her bounty.



She surrenders herself:

their rising glory

at her expense,

the day not far off

when they will take her place.
