Lapwings on the Moors – hour 3

Hour 3 Prompt 3


Lapwings on the Moors


The clouds settled early over the moors today

Reminding me of the frosts that coat the late lapwing eggs in their nests


So I ran

I ran to gather them

To protect them

To save them

To give them a warm place they might shelter during the cold night


Only to find you’d tortured them with your trap

And now I see your bars

I long to escape your hold before I die in the nest as well
