    carried off by owls

    carried off by owls-

    when i was young
    i listened to their night music
    see them rule in the moonlight
    majestic beings in ethereal clearings
    wide-eyed wonder in slight light

    wild and free on the wing
    wind through my hair and howls
    an immeasurable and pleaseurable a thing
    to be carried off by owls

    our friends the bat and rat
    the precocious, the ferocious, the curious
    we are children baptized in mist
    last to the party, last kissed

    we are starlight, we are stunning
    we are private pirate prowls
    no more walking no more more running
    when you're carried off by owls

    Hey Crush! This is an excellent poem: "we are children baptized in mist" –– love this line! Cheers, DAH



    Thank you DAH! How have you been. I haven’t been writing as much because I am concentrating on my art. Be well.



    All is well, Crush. Thank you! Would love to see your art. Is it online? Cheers, DAH

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

    John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
