Beast In The Tall Grass

Rating: 5.0

he walks slowly through the tall brown grass
rubbing the stems with a quiet hush
a gentle breaze whistles over the evening plain
a beast walks with the motion of the tall brown grass, slowly..
his shoulders creep up and down like a seesaw
paws thump the dry ground beneath quietly..thump..thump
thumping to the tune of a steady heartbeat.bom, bom..bom, bom
silence encases the open field of frightened stag
the herd stops as if a rifle had been fired, BANG
but not a sound is heard over the persisting silence
