The Ravenous Red Kite

Red kite flying high

Soaring up on thermal waves

Slow circle drift and climb

With wings outstretched

It breaks the flow

Then swoops and turns

In majestic flight

A horizontal glide

On an even keel

Predatory eyes scanning

Hedgerows and fields

It swoops with pointed talons

And hooked beak open

Whoosh!

Swiftly gone

Is the living shrew

Taken upward

In fearful flight

To be devoured

By the ravenous kite
