Night, Sublime

An owl’s hoot
Its lone night-time salute
Echoes eerily from the dark trees

I hear the comforting sounds of the gentle breeze
Whistling outside the house like an old woman’s wheeze

Far off, the village clock strikes one time
The owl hoots at its chime
Night, sublime

Jack Horne, 19th August, for Nette’s Night Melody contest

    Great descriptive work that tells of an interesting eve..A hoot owl is not so bad but a screech owl is a scary sounding bird...Thanks for stopping by my work..My husband had Lyme disease as well as our oldest grandson..My husband was sick for a year before the doctors found out what it was..The grandson got sick and the antibiotic did not get him well..Then our daughter heard on the radio about testing at the health department if a person had had certain symptoms so she took the grandson..Sara

    He tested positive or the illness..I convinced my husband to go also and he tested positive..He had to take antibiotics twice for fourteen days before he finally tested negative.It was an awful year for him..He ran high fevers off and on a very long time..Sara
