Nighttime Daily Prompt: The Full Moon

In response to the daily prompt found here: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/08/20/daily-prompt-nighttime/

Nighttime  

Silver moonglow bathes savannah
Doe eyes search long, yellow grass.
Fear stalks the night
On silent padded paws.  

She snorts a warning
Hooves explode in frenzy
Bounding, darting, dodging
A squeal rends the air
Claws rip, hold,
Teeth clamp throat.
Doe eyes glaze and fade
While in the silver glow Cubs tumble toward their meal.  

Silver moonglow bathes city streets
Warm brown eyes search the shadows
Fear stalks the night
On silent sneakers.  

Breath catches, heart pounds,
She calls a warning.
Silence.
Feet explode In a frenzy of fear.
Her scream rends the air
Cut off when hands grip throat.
Eyes glaze and fade
While in the silver glow He lets her fall and slopes off
To seek another victim.
