Owl by my Window

Owl by my Window

A Poem by Alex Vidmar
"

This actually happened last night. Thought it would be good to put it into words.

"
Last night as I sat strumming,
A loud cry interrupted my humming.
It was the cry of a demon,
It's sound, so inhuman.

Then came the hooting,
A recognizable call.
That "who-who-wh-whooo"
Of the Great Horned Owl.

I turned out my lights and,
Cracked open a shade.
And with it's human's eyes,
Silent contact was made.

Human and Animal,
Connection was made.
And I could tell,
It would never fade.

I watched as it left
It's perch by my window.
And a nearby tree,
Was where it flew off to.

It stayed in that tree,
All night long.
A spirit of the night,
Where it belonged.

I felt like it was
Trying to tell me something.
A message, maybe?
It could be.

My silent guardian,
My mutual friend.
I have a feeling tonight,
It'll happen again.

I trust that you understand.
I trust you all believe.
This story isn't a lie.
It's real, don't you see?

I have this connection,
With a demon of the night.
A demon who guards me,
With all of it's might.

OWL!!! very beautiful creatures. Sometimes, when we least expect it, something extraordinary happens and the moment takes on such profound inspiration in the soul that it seems impossible to contain. I feel like that happened with the connection you made with your guardian, very rare. Awesome write as well, the words captivate and the poem tells a beautiful story.

This really is an exciting poem..... Not once in my life had i seen an Owl in the flesh, but even if i do i think it would be impossible for me to restrain my self from releasing a rollicking scream... You, though, were brave enough to actually make an eye contact with this beautiful but SCARY creature of the night.
Wonderful poem, enjoyed it very much.

the beginning reminds me of a poem I read along long time ago..I think it was probly Edgar Allen Poes uh (cant remember) but I really like the clashing scenes with the mean scary word demeanor.

keep writing and

good luck!

This is really good, Alex. I love how it tells a story that you personally experienced. That's what makes it more interesting. Owls are beautiful animals! I just wish I'd come in contact with one. It's sort of impossible from where I live. Haha! But anywho, back to your poem. I think your poem gives a lot of detail from that night, which is incredible. It's almost as if I was there. I like how you said that it could be trying to tell you a message. I always believe in different things trying to tell me things. Great job! :D

i liked the idea of the night owl as a demon- maybe something more menacing than you'd expect from this bird. lovely poem.

I love owls. I don't really think of them as demons, so that was interesting. Neat writing.
