Noises of nature (4/31 March SOLSC) #sol22

As I lay sound asleep, the animalistic nature of the outside world was very alert.

A pack of coyotes was on the prowl in search of a late night meal.

I will never know how long they were roaming or what they caught.

But they let everyone around them and neighborhoods nearby hear in the only way they know how.

I was startled awake by the eery and ear-piercing howls which sounded like they were directly outside my window.

Congratulations on your meal, but next time, don’t celebrate at night when the sun isn’t even out.

  1. “As I lay sound asleep, the animalistic nature of the outside world was very alert.” What a captivating first line. May tonight yield a yelp-free slumber!
