"The Flight"

Prepare your wings for graceful flight
Dust off the dreary soot
Scan the land for enemies
that might lay underfoot

Prop your head, observe the wind
Detect the current flow
Expand your glory generous
Your colors all aglow

Cast into the gentle breeze
You feel your form ascend
Lift you up into the clouds
With seemingly no end

Down you plunge with quickened pulse
Then terminate your dive
Up again and to the right
So sweet to be alive

On the ground, a tiny speck
You notice quite a morsel
A scrumptious wing upon a moth
Lay perfect on it's dorsal

The rumble of your tiny gut
Revels an inner need
The tiny moth upon the ground
Is destined to concede

Belly full and satisfied
You're back in flight once more
Float above the open sea
And revel at the shore

What kind of beast are you describing here Kelly? Is this a bat, or a bird?

Ever seen a bat silhoetted by the moon up close? They are very much aglow, and they hunt moths as their main source of food, but I will admit that they don't show much colour at night.

Some of them do not hunt moths, but prefer fruit of blood.
Opps! Is this relevent?
I like the poem!
