Overboard

Overboard

A Poem by Fabian G. Franklin
"

Inspired by events of this morning.

"



There were owls before dawn

Singing to each other

One song; long and loud,

The other, soft and deep

 

Clouds drifted dark sky

A light breeze blew

And a fine mist

Made soft and easy sweep

 

Soon came a dripping

And low, distant thunder

Dreams slipping

Between majestic trees

 

The great owls hushed

Eerie silence ensued

Until lightning flashed

Adrift on celestial seas

 

Roaring ocean waves

Beyond morning's door

Through a mighty sieve

Tapping window panes

 

Owls became hosts

To summer's sighing ghost

Slipping overboard

In cold November rain

The transition plays itself along magically
before those who see
wonderful as always

Read those Wild World words; read again, slowly, slowly.. Closed my eyes, wanting to see and hear the same. Almost succeeded, wanted to. You've really captured the outdoors of your world, Fabian... there's such magic, such privilege insharing events like that, don't you thin. For me there's often a smell or scent in the air when creatures hover, when weather alters - can be wonderful.. or otherwise.. nowt we can do about it! Thank you for taking me to another place!
