Something Was There

It rode the breeze in utter silence. I felt it lift,
fall, its practiced pulse, it even blocked out the sun
for a second when, looking up, I saw it silhouetted -
a halo glow around its feathered outline revealing
the form of that prophetic beast. Be proud now,
father, that raptor is no longer with me.
