Midnight hour swirls in fog around me,
Slowly blinking open my tiny eyes.
I’m upside down! What’s this around I see?
Other black winged friends, to my sure surprise.
I breathe the night inside of me and stretch.
This unknown body seem foreign but known.
I take off and fly, a meal I will fetch.
My ears spot a chipmunk near a pine cone.
My bat belly filled with a scrumptious meal.
I take flight under the cover of stars.
Feeling of flight, the best feeling I feel.
Swaying high above the city and cars.
This dream is a dream I’m hoping won’t end,
Thank you for this adventure, my bat friend.
