April poetry challenge day 17

A triolet inspired by Kerfe Roig’s beautiful Badger. You can read all the contributions here.

Badger light

In the grey of badger light
That smells of earthy, rooted things,
The dark is fox and barn owl flight.
In the grey of badger light,
You rollock through the scented night.
On sharp-clawed pads, no need for wings,
You skim the grey of badger light,
That smells of earthy, rooted things.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
