iguana head

Today’s prompt: Start with an image that is very large and throughout the poem have the image become smaller. This poem goes right from very large to much smaller.

Dreaming of dinosaurs
while pacing the patio –
cat spies a gecko
and pounces, mouth wide.

Now only the tail
betrays his presence
in those clamped jaws.
