Silent as day falling into night
he glides across fresh fallen snow
barely leaving a trail in the land
like a shadow in the night
he blends in the night landscape
a movement on the ground catches his attention
he stops,body quivering with excitement
a rabbit frozen with fear suddenly bolts
ma-he-can jumps to the chase
zig-zagging across the frozen ground
the two hurtle through the silent woods
ma-he-can never misses the rabbit's turns
he could lunge and snap the rabbit's neck
but he waits
rabbit stumbles burying his face in the snow
quivering eyes full of fear he awaits his death
ma-he-can's eyes yellow expressionless stops
he howls at the moon,a mournful cry
his cry is answered in the wind
he trots away,glancing back only once
he is not hungry tonight
the run was only for the joy of life.
i get the poem but i don't understand the title, is it some kind of word or something?
Punctuation would help the flow. Nice wording though.
Nice poem and the flow is awesome as well! Keep up the great work and to me ma-he-can is a wolf, but I could be wrong! Nice job!
hey blue your right Ma-he-can does mean wolf^_^how did you knowO.o
he is a fox , its an animal thing lol anyway i loved the poem
and i love how you described how the wolf just killed for
the pleasure of it ,its sort of like a human does some of
us kill just because we can and we enjoy it.
we might not howl but we have our ways of letting
people know that we did something out of fun and enjoyment
and i think how you did the poem gives it away as well about it
being about a wolf.
It's like my big Bro HolderoftheDarkChalice said I am a fox! But the image that poem puts into my head gave me a clue, but when you said "he howls at the moon,a mournful cry" that's what let me know that infact it was a wolf! Great job on the poem thought! I'm looking forward to more of your work!
hey Blue your a smart one^_^I'm glad all of you read my poem and live life to the fullest!
