Poetry: “Owls”

Gran Canaria4 129

***~***~***~***

Owls

Night’s swift hunters
Keeping watch
Solemn hooting
Chills the blood

Causing fear
Or causing awe
Sign of wisdom
Or of death

Cursing families
Or protectors
Perched on Athena
And Mictlantecuhtli both

All those things
Inspired by
That tiny bird there
On that shelf
