NaPoWriMo 2013, Day #29 - birds of prey

Urgh! only two more days to go!

A fantasy tale today. A dark fantasy piece.








birds of prey


we wait
for the dusk
to scatter
the last of the
light

on cliff edges
that was once
the bastions
of mighty
citadels

and as the
last shards
of light splinter
and fall like
broken glass

we stretch
our wings the leather
taut with muscles
leap off
the precipice

soar over
the smoke & ruins
of a world
torched by
atomic fire.
