The Rapacious Eagle

by Diana L Crawford

Obscure Word 7-9-7 Contest Winner 

Rapacious noble eagle,

Scouring the water for sustenance - 

his prey unaware of fate.


 

Writing Prompt
Ladies and Gentlemen (and all other members to whom these monikers may not apply!): it's time once again for the Obscure Word 7-9-7! Find a word that truly exists but that, for some reason or another, has been out of the mainstream -- and bring it back for us! ;) Your poem should be of the format:

First Line -- 7 syllables
Second Line -- 9 syllables
Third Line -- 7 syllables

It should highlight/explain/define an obscure word for us and really make us want to use it the next time we compose an offering! :) Remember, keep it mostly clean (know that's difficult for some of you out there, but it IS only 23 syllables so I'm sure you can manage it!) and impress us! :) Make it fun, make it intriguing, but, most of all, make us want to vote for yours!! :) LET THE OBSCURITY BEGIN!! :)
