The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 22/2020

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “animal sounds.” Write about the sounds animals make and how you experience them.

In the dead of night,

As the world slept,

A pale moonlight bathed the land.

The moon,

Sheathed by clouds,


Fearing to come out.

An eerie silence,

But faraway somewhere,

Dogs gave an angry growl,

As if sensing spirits on a prowl.

I sat huddled,

And shuddered,

And the cats let out a melancholic wail,

Their mew full of travail.

An owl hooted,

As a bat screeched,

In cahoots with fiery forces unleashed.

A miry haze,

The world in a daze,

As leaves rustled,

Timid and trepidant,

Wind silently whistled.

A smell of fear,

Mystical and enigmatic,

Hung in air.

Denizens dead now alive,

Watching unseen,

The natives sleeping,

I sit huddled,
