Owl Calling

I rise in darkness to owl calling
Its message gentle but persistent
Urges me to unfold my mighty wings
And soar silently through the trees

Cloaked in darkness, I cast my vision inward
Seeing clearly my dream
Then pivot my neck to gain my bearing
On the outer
Taking inspired flight toward my destination

I leave behind all perception of custom
And glance heartward for guidance
Golden eyes gleaming and breath full

  3. This poem is full of wonderfull allegory. its just beautifull Anne!

  4. SEED: “glance heartward for guidance”

    FITZ Title: silent wings of knowing

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    your owl is wise indeed
    to know that even keen eyes
    cannot see what the heart does not allow –

    nor can our spirit whisper of things unseeable,
    save that which heart can bear …

    some say the soul is the place of balance
    ‘tween mind and spirt; which may be so –
    but heart is the searcher,

    . . . . . . . . . . . Bard of Lemuria

  5. I too have an urge to unfold my mighty wings. Taking flight on the thermal currents of cyber space brings such joy. Thanks Anne! This is a beautiful carving.

  6. Owls fly so silently. It is surely a message.

  7. What a beautiful description of soaring free and being able to look within oneself for guidance. Thanks for sharing.

  8. To be in the darkness and then rise above it- Macabre as I am I really enjoy this image.

    It’s very freeing.
