I could have sworn it was a bird.

When something big and black crashes hard enough into my window to shatter it, the first thing I think is it must be a bird.

But those leathery, featherless, bloodstained wings are not bird wings.

No, most of the birds around here know the tint of my windows, but blinded by the sun, that poor bat never saw the glass coming.


Based on a Halloween prompt from Writer’s Carnival: Things that Go Bump in the Day.

In no more than 4 sentences or 12 lines of poetry, write about a frightening occurrence which happens while the sun is still shining. What kind of terrors lurk in broad daylight?

Hope you enjoy what I’ve written! Thanks for reading, and Happy Halloween!
