The Panther

by Kimberly Bower

She walks in beauty, like the night

Her powerful body glistening

Damped by the chase

The antelope panting

gripped by fear

knows he is doomed

even as the panther draws near

The hunt is short

The panther quick

But in an odd twist of fate

The antelope slips

The poacher’s pit cuts the panther’s hunt short

The panther resigns

But finds another sport.
