Hidden in Plain Sight

Hidden in Plain Sight

A Poem by Patricia Wedel
"

Safe and secure with warm feathers

"
In the Cover of darkness a Mother Owl keeps Vigil 

over her little horned owls who sleep peaceably 

without fear... not even little owl tears... 

Wearing camouflage they blend with the foliage... 

Fluffy feathers and yellow eyes... they look 

like falling stars in the moonlight hours... 

Owls during the day can hide in plain sight.

Dear Pat, I am so fond of owls. The wisest of birds. There is something so comforting about the owl keeping guard, keeping watch at night while we are in dreamland. I love this cosy picture you paint with words of proud mother caring for her baby owlets. I have a picture of two owls perched on a branch. It's a calender picture. My cat gets up so close, mesmerised by the staring yellow eyes. This is a warm, fluffy write and I love your posted image of you dearest poet blossoming amid garden flowers. Lovely.

First, let's discuss this strapless hussy in the photo . . . is that you? I am so jealous becuz you look younger than me & I'm pretty sure you beat me by a few. You look so sassy . . . if this is you . . . & it would fit with the strong sassy colorful personality I get from your poems & reviews. Now to this poem, which I love very much both for the owl theme & the fierce-momma flavor. This is butt-kicking writing: "Fluffy feathers and yellow eyes... they look like falling stars in the moonlight hours" Thank you for gifting us (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

You are so right one can be perched 20 feet away from you and you won't see them! I cater for a wildlife rescue center frequently and they have many owls that they use as ambassador animals that they take to schools and events and I love the mystique they always have you can always see the wheels turning in there heads as they gaze back at you:)

This is a lovely nature offering. I love all birds. I walked into a nest once of a mourning dove in a cedar tree. She sat there on her nest and did not blink and I was inches away. I slowly backed up and away and left her and her chick alone. They were perfectly hidden. Great write, I enjoyed.

We have burrowing owls in our neighborhood and they are so adorable! Yes, the mother does stand guard and the little ones blend in with the foliage around them. If they sense danger, they go into their burrowing nest. You are such a lover of nature, Pat. I always enjoy your poetry. Lydi**

A lovely poem Pat, just so beautifully written about those most fascinating of birds.

'Fluffy feathers and yellow eyes... they look
like falling stars in the moonlight hours...'

Such a unique description of those sweet little baby owls.

Pat, so much depth within the natural beauty of this poem. I think of the wise owl, solitary, humble, his/her voice recognizable among all the others, and how it quiets the smaller, chatty birds, and how his/her presence seems to calm everything around it.

Gee
Owls are like women, you never know what they are thinking, they have a mystical air, look at you like they are reading your mind.
My favourite bird easily.
Enjoyed reading you Patricia
