Day 23 of Na/GloPoWriMo challenge: Write a poem about an animal.
Have you ever had that dream
where you woke up by moonlight
not in your bed, safe and warm
but maybe you were running through a field or into a forest
and you could feel your heart race and your mouth full of teeth, grinding impatiently
because you were so eager to get to where you needed to be
out there in the moonlight
where you could sing as loud as you want and run as hard as you want until
you found your prize and brought it down as smooth as a leaf being pulled down stream
Have you ever had that dream?
I do, every time the moon is full.
