The Barred Owl


                                                           on my neighbor's roof

                                                           the full moon rests ...
                                             
                                                           the barred owl asleep in the pines

  2. I sure like this poem, Teresa. It uses a literary equivalent of chiaroscuro to describe a tableau of light and shadows --points of reference from solid roof to an owl the poet can't see but knows is there.

  3. I love the imagery, both visual and written. I also love listening to the owls in the night as they discuss whatever it is they discuss.

    1. Thank you. It's always nice to hear them going back and forth, usually at dawn and dusk. I've had one visit me quite a bit this winter ... even spent time on my porch railing a few times. Sometimes for a couple of hours ... quite an experience to see one so close.
