    The Warrior Mice

    The orange and gold of the dark desert floor
    did fade with the plummet of the Sun
    -and the red heat ebbed in the twilight
    -while the blue stars twinkled in the nightlight.
    -When the brown sand shifted in the moonlight,

    two mice did run, run, run

    thru a deep, deep gully of an upslant hill
    over sand in the night sublime.
    -Their hearts beat faster in the lost light
    -from impending disaster of a fright night
    -by the claws of an Owl now in mid-flight

    as its wings sliced the air from behind,


    But as Warrior Mice hunting on the hot desert sand
    and designed for evasive speeds,
    -they flickered thru shadows of the night time,
    -criss-crossed the black road’s white line,
    -confused the Owl’s sight line

    bringing food for their young ‘uns needs.

    And the orange and gold of the bright desert floor
    were the paints of the dawn’s display
    -as the mice peeked once at the daylight
    -thru the sweltering heat that was airtight
    -while the sand grew hot in the sunlight

    and the Owl waited close of the day.


    Soon, sunset light poured colors into night
    dimming day into indigo and black;
    -on the sounds and the silences of evening,
    -on the shadows of the forest life teeming
    -where the Dusk of the night stays sleeping

    with a dream of the Dawn coming back.

    Then the orange and gold of the dark desert floor
    disappeared with the plummet of the Sun
    -and the red heat ebbed in the twilight
    -while the blue stars twinkled in the nightlight.
    -When the brown sand shifted in the moonlight

    two mice did run, run, run.

    This round-about poem paints a vivid picture even without the colorful formatting of the lettering. I'll bet it would be great illustrated as a children's book.

      RLW - The color formatting was just an experiment but so glad you enjoyed this tale of mice survival told for grown-ups and for those on their way to being grown-ups who daily will have to do the same. Thanks RhymeLovingWriter. Namyh
