The Night

Posted March 9, 2012 & filed under Notebook.

Owls are hooting

The stars look pale yellow

like they are invisible

When everyone is asleep

thousands of animals hunt

In the north sky the moon

is bright white

There’s a sweet smell coming

from the trees

The night goes by very fast

like butter slipping out of your hands

until the sun comes up

The Owl and the Man

Posted July 20, 2009 & filed under Notebook.

The owl looks like it
is scared.

The man looks like he is praying.

The man doesn’t know
that there’s an owl behind him.

The owl has spooked eyes;
his tail is still, and his eyes
are round.

The man’s legs are long but his
feet are short.

The man looks like he is
a serious man.
His eyes are closed.
He has a cape on.

The owl is hiding.

I imagine this to be a church
with a purple background.
