Shriek (WOTDC)

Inspired by Word of the Day Challenge – thank you, Cyranny

Definition: Shriek – n. a high-pitched piercing cry or sound; a scream

Synonyms: scream, screech, squeal, squawk, roar, howl, bellow, bawl

Form: Pathya Vat 1

outside echoes
a squealing sound
I look around
and see no-one
another screech
is it distress
or something less
I just don’t know
I look again
and hear the scream
in moonlight’s beam
foxes in love
