Owl

Moonrise

owl wakes in the night

blinks round eyes,

frowns at the moon,

takes flight

Cat,

high stepping

across the dewy lawn

takes fright,

Yowl and hoot

And the scurrying of mice

 

Wingbeats

Owl swooping over dark fields

Silent dark shadow

seeing what night

conceals,

Eyes,

Round glowing

slow-blinking eyes

existence reveals

Moon smiles

Silent reflections on the lake
