Surrounded by the warmth layers of blankets provide

on a cold winters night.

Sleep interrupted by a piercing cry.

Too loud to ignore, too continuous to dismiss.

Stumbling to to back door in search of answers,

the continued sorrow rang forth.

Nature is both beautiful and cruel, especially to the prey.

The kill was slow and agonizing, death didn’t come easily.

A moment shared while the creature transitioned,

unable to protect or help.

Soon quiet enveloped the night, the journey for our friend

had begun.

Praying for a new life in a land of herbivores.
