Owl In The Night


Scratchboarded stars of liquid light pouring in like rain beneath the cupola of heaven one sentinel of night A solitary figure stilled by the mutany of a willful hoot his head is bowed as he listens, pressed to the dark A Universal ensemble of nightly vocation, owlish wise he knows not to disturb the hour, as he turns right on time Earthly vibrations of the lowest kind everyone is sleeping but not everyone is blind, head bowed he listens to ... Insiped in velvet with browny eyes of amber flame n' light beneath the humdrum moments of nocturnal sweep, the owl breathes, where no man has yet trespassed the owl heeds, through ebons of nocturnality-delights Scratchboarded stars of liquid light pouring in like rain, beneath the cupola of heaven the Sentinal, of night.

Absolutely wonderful is the imagery in this poetry Pixie. We have an owl who visits most nights in our garden, I will forever think of this line when I try to catch his eye now 'Insiped in velvet with browny eyes of amber flame n' light' Love it and a fave for my list....Maria Hugs
