Encroaching

She arched her back,

stretching from a luxurious nap.

Smiling, she recalled her dream

of silken sheets and warm milk.

Abruptly, the hair stood at the base of her neck,

suddenly aware of eyes piercing through her.

A shriek scampered up a tree

and burst into hundreds of streaming sparrows,

as the coyote clamped his teeth over the cat’s soft belly.

*Poor cat for obvious reasons, but woe for the coyote whose home is rapidly shrinking.

    • That’s amazing, M! Didn’t expect that at all. I thought it would be a story of a coyote being friends with a badger. This was way cooler! Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing! 😘
