Night creature

In the night hedge
Where shadows cluster
And weave their midnight webs
I heard a sound
As if something moved there
And caught a flash
Perhaps of eyes
Perhaps of teeth
Or maybe nothing,
Just the dark moving
Of leaf and branch
A flame of light
Caught in a raindrop
Or perhaps eyes
Perhaps teeth.
