The poetry of bats is hushed and light

Print of paper collage by angelique, 6 x 6 in.

They wait,
whisper awake
as the fruit cools,
as the sonar song falls
over their dreams like a lover’s arms
and pushes them toward the twilight.
Their eyelids snap up,
they glide on black wings
out of the safe, into the fat nightbugs.
Scientists are baffled by a mysterious condition that has killed tens of thousands of bats in the northeastern United States since winter 2006-2oo7. A Science Strategy meeting will be held in June 2009 to address the situation.
Now in my Etsy shop SugarCain.

Bats.......a woman after my own heart. And the art shows everything perfect about bats that exists within the human halloween imagination. Good Job. Make it a book. I would buy for my little monster.
