Night Eyes

Night Eyes

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

😐

"

On Hemlock’s high haven, its haunt

Folded flight feathers set yet to flaunt

The Owl’s sharp-eyed seeking search

Silent, blended into his patient perch

Fain focused on foreboding flight

To sweep silent through dark, deep night

A minstrel of dark death, his right

To mindless morsels he'll bring no delight

As they meander through leaf scatter below

Seeking sustenance in damp autumn’s meadow

While night’s breeze wends nocturnal wander

On quiet branch he patiently poses to ponder

Where jiggled grass blades, wiggle waggle hello

Showing slight signs where living meal's go

Not knowing these sent sign’s will reveal

Where silent Owl drops down for a meal

I love the owls. A bird of mystery to the Native American. Native American believe. If a owl come to your window. Death is near. I enjoyed the tale my friend. The hunter in the night can be quiet and dangerous. Thank you for sharing the excellent chapter.

I enjoyed your words Dave and you are welcome.
This poem is banging on all cylinders -- great rhyme, rhythm, alliteration & other word crafting treasures, combined with your bubbly love for nature & outdoors, throwing down dynamic playful imagery. I figure for every 3 poems of yours that I review, I stumble upon a dedicated poetic creation like this. It just goes to show you are a poet of varied pen strokes (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

It's hard not to enjoy an ode to my namesake - and even more so for one so well penned.

Happily read, this one - thank you for posting Dave.

Let's hope the wind dies down a bit eh? It's been feeling concurrent to the state of politics over the border.

All the best,

You really brought me to the scene with the imagery in this one. I could picture the owl swooping down to capture his next meal. Great word choice throughout. Good rhyming too. Lydi**
