The owl, proud, is perched on

The strong arm of an ancient oak

Silhouetted against an azure sky

Itís eyes, golden, stare out into the darkness


For the dead

Those lost souls, which the owl carries away

To nowhere

Only the owl knows where she goes

Her talons are eager

But she is content to wait

For the next soul
Silently in the inky blackness

I've read of owls being the harbingers of death. This takes that belief to a deeper level. Great write, Carrie...
