Night Visitor

 

We hear a scratch

on window screen

like tiny paws

though sight unseen

 

Then baby eyes

with trust appear

could almost touch

it is so near

 

What a strange creature

night provides

an odd visitor

from the outside

 

How awkward it 

seen in detail

a fantasy

from fairy tales

 

Yet to our eyes

quite a delight

tapped into our lives

a wondrous sight

 

Gray ghost we host

its teeth so white

the possum grins

then wobbles into night.
