Poem: "owl feathers"

This poem came out of the January 24, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] rix_scaedu. It has been sponsored out of the general fund.


owl feathers


night comes on velvet wings

pale feathers ghosting through the air
dark feathers shadowing their prey

death comes in forests, in cornfields
death comes in silence, unseen

until it strikes
