NaPoWriMo 2013, Day #2 - one night on a quiet road

Day 2 and looking good. This piece looks/sounds jerky but that's what I intended.








one night on a quiet road



startled

the bat fluttered
in the space
inches from my

face

startled

my face
white as the lines
on the asphalt

you bet! :D

i think it was a species of fruit bat. there were many around that area because the road was lined with mango trees. i don't know why that bat was so blur.

My face would be too! I love the poem : ) Very visual and small...like a haiku.
