Hi, Everyone,

We have decided to close the Almanac forums.

The good news: Now you have the ability to comment on the www.Almanac.com Web site pages!

The Web site has grown tremendously, with 12 million readers every month. You'll find folks who are weather watchers, gardening enthusiasts, stargazers, and more. Find advice, get answers to questions, and share your experiences.

Find the Almanac here, too!

Finally, a big THANK YOU to all those who have participated in and looked after the forums over the years!

Shadow Of The Predator

Screams of terror join the night
intermingling with the chirps and croaks
of crickets and fat frogs.
A thousand stars undimmed by city lights
and the screams continue
as moths fly pursued by bats that deftly avoid manmade objects like me
I walk toward that horrible howling
surrounded by a bucolic sea.
When abruptly, the gentle sounds of nature
again take precedence
and I have seen the shadow of the predator dance with death.
