Dangerous Darkness – A Riddle

When sunbeams shine on skies above

light the world , the fields and all thereof.

Deep in the woods where it’s cool and dark

the life of danger’s set to park…

**

Sleep comes easy, rest does too,

It’s important to let strength re-new.

The night will be another fight

to get the pray and some to bite.

**

Finally from dusk to dawn

the time has come to test the brawn.

in silence and with secret swings

the danger has prepared its wings.

**

Soundless floating on the wind

it finds its victim, has it pinned.

A cry in highest pitch and pain

and the predator has won his gain.

**

Quickly carrying it to hide.

three beaks to feed with strength and pride.

The night just started, much to do

mommy flies – for kids to chew.

**

No prey will have the time to fear

death will come, with none to hear.

No sound, no smell, it will go fast.

And no memory to even last.

**

The predator will eat it whole

later we’ll find them by the pole.

A pellet out of bones and fur

a victim’s life, gone in a blur.

**

But danger’s kids will proudly grow

to become more predators to show.

Beautiful and lethal, in secret to hide

More danger, more murder in silence to glide.

**

Adjusting with nature, in dawn and light

during night and day a beautiful sight.

Eyes like candles , attentive and wise

a master of death and in disguise.

**

Of course this danger is protected in weathers

covered from head to toe in feathers.

Something some call without respect “fowl”

I’m talking, no doubt, about the beautiful owl.
