Premium Member No where to go
The clouds form deep in the valley
The evening time darkens the skies

Rain falls a pitter patter intensifying slowly in heavier lines
Deer takes shelter under the central oak

The moon shadows drown the barn owl flight
Nature settles down for the night

Premium Member This picture of our life
Trees bristled but the breeze was warm
Sun hazed over, perfect summer charm

We reminisced, saw back beyond the day
So many summers loved each in their way

Barn owl glided over the fields
Silence of beauty, this masterpiece lives

Capture the memory of the surrounding...Read More

Accompanied by my legion,
The most feared in the region.

Because we are stronger as one,
Taking enemies by the tons.

A brotherhood of family and trust,
Lucky to have the gods look down on us.

Finding pride in battles won,
Because we together are strong.

Premium Member The Owl and the Jay
			An old grey barn owl sat on a limb;
			He looked weary and a bit forlorned.
			A young blue jay flew up beside him;
			with brilliant blue plumage he was adorned.
			The jay to the owl, “Why are you so sad;
			You have everything going...Read More

COVERED BRIDGE, contest entry
Covered bridge contest hosted by craig cornish

Father's grave was across the covered bridge.
The river was cold, white, rushing.
It roared on the broken stones, as
the mare stepped onto the planks
pulling her dark carriage on its black wheels.
Her iron shoes fell, dancing.

So where will Flynn begin again
When he will start his next sin
We saw surge;
He had urge,
And many times may have been.

Night Bird Talk
Night air seeping in is anything but serene,
hear gossip through my window screen,
mockingbird mocks a few,
barn owl repeats who,
bird talk just like human beings!

Bluebird's Gone
 Springtime put a spring in my step
Bluebird brought bright bars of music next
I saw her sip at the faithful fountain; sing soulfully
As I prayed: wishing the world was well, more certain
About the value of various voices: bird, boy, girl,...Read More

The radiance of day withdrawn
An old moon a lamp up high;
A barn owl  keeps still across the lawn
While orioles decide to fly.

Robins nestle for the night,
Sky paints a deep shade of blue
Even the gust falls with the light;
So we...Read More

Tears... how brittle in the ruin of this heart
Like dampened weeds burned into cinder ,
When maple trees turn ebon and droop
As laughing winds do not return… nothing moves,
Not even the sky in its hazy curves.

I often wonder where you go
wise sentinel, who somehow knows
that days grow long,  time sways and bends. 
You stay awhile, become our friend
Then off you fly,  when summer ends

What becomes  of one we've grown to know

My window is an eye on the morning stretch. 
Raspy green grasses tangle up in the vetch.
A mama quail runs down the soft red clay path.
Her fat round babies edged to the drain for a bath.

He walked past the gate which led to the door to the cellar

Remember, remember, remember!

Raindrops fell to create a slither of water

The white kitten and butterflies
From eyes of a kitten 

As I wink my eyes through sun's bright shutter,
from beneath shrubs in lazy garden of the house,
I see vivid, iridescent blue butterflies flutter,
the youngest kitten, am not catching any mouse,

From beneath shrubs in lazy garden...Read More

I am one of nine babies born in a farmer's barn,
The barn is cozy and even has an owl door;
My birth nest so warm with stuff like grandma's yarn,
To keep us fed-  into the dark mom will soar.

Barn Owl
sits up high,
head twisting round.
Rustling undergrowth,
he swoops silently down.
Shrill screech of terror and pain,
the evil deed done, he returns home.
Three fluffy chicks hungrily await,
they feast, stocking up for the winter months.

Summers End
The energy of Autumn is in the air
with small but subtle colors seeping
into the receptive scene everywhere.

Harvesting fields are being drawn
as each new day has its very own
ever changing, brilliant dawn.

Blue sky, glorious golden sunshine 
Elements every farmer needs.
With crops rippling in the breeze
Combine harvesters whirl into action
See them steadfastly snaking along the fields
I can hear their dull drone from morning to night
Farmhands work tirelessly to gather the harvest

The Barn Owl
In silent air on silent wing
the deadly flight to one will find
unwelcome communion in the gloom
that hails the never-ending night

The heart shaped face belies the truth
imparting spiritual grace
a beating heart then nothing more 
a flash of white then empty space
