Wally Swist – The Owl


I am awakened
By cries that do not stop.
They say, Come, see if you can find me–
Half the meadow in moonlight,
The other half shadowed by white pine.
A pair of eyes fly up and dance,
Owl eyes that hold the moon.

Jean Varda – Standing on Centuries of Pine Needles

Our feet soundlessly pass through
patches of moonlight
lightly as breath

not just the moon
catches my hair
but the black shadows of
sleeping trees
fill my eyes

not just the milk-white filament
of stars
appearing between pine branches

but the fresh living smell
of creek water and rotting leaves
has saturated my senses

and I no longer know where
you begin or I end
