WPC: Against the Odds

DSC_0393

No call to run or scream or shout
Just because I am about

With pinpoint vision I zero in
On chosen prey I aim to win

Swooping down with talons sharp
Piercing quickly through the heart

Never killing out of greed
Taking only what I need

As Mourning Doves scattered in
all directions, a Sharp-shinned
Hawk, against the odds, managed
to skillfully score a meal.
