A White Shadow

A White Shadow (Double Reverse Etheree)

The shadows of the forest beckoning
I wander down under ancient trees
that stately stand guarding all
cloaking the hidden secrets
from eyesight in the gloom
hearing a rustle
high in the trees 
there perched
you sit
still
not
moving
a statue
until to wing
you swoop through the trees
not a sound do you make
a white shadow in the dark
you land nearby, your hoot rings out
another hoot in the distance
answering you fly off to join your mate

    what a beautiful white shadow it is. Love to see this bird so pretty in the snow. Shadow, a question on your child's christmas contest, may we enter an old poem with the date on it?
