Last Words

by Linda Jenkinson

Purple-blue night into
Blue-white day,
On the glacier,
There he lay.
Wind blown contraband
Nature’s cruel sacrifice.
Brown coat prominent
Against silver ice.
Pearly clouds swimming
In blue bowl of sky.
Bird selects victim
In flash of eagle eye.
Self-preservation,
A final word of wit,
Mouse taunts the raptor,
“Have you had breakfast yet?”
