The Silent Owl

The silent owl swoops 
Silhouette on Silver moon
Prey unsuspecting

A beautifully written haiku Maria, with quiet but lively imagery (if that makes sense...).., I think the 's' words, of course including 'silent', and the fact that owl's wings in flight are noiseless, makes it feel quiet - but lively to me... So I guess it does make sense lol! A vivid haiku that I enjoyed!!
