Horned Owl

Heavy worries and thoughts are

Drowned out by the soft hooting of

The great-horned owl.

Who sits outside my window

And lulls me to sleep….

"Whoo! Whoo-whoo-whoo! Whoo! whoo!"

"Are you awake? Me too!"

Somewhere you are awake,

although I am fading into sleep,

My thoughts are caressed by the owl,

And I wonder if he is a reflection of you

Wishing to be ever closer.

Perhaps he is just an owl,

And you just a man,

Who captivated my heart,

And took hostage my dreams.
