Owls: Who? Who!

Standard

The owls are calling out tonight

Who? Who!

From the skies

from the trees

Their constant cries

their incessant why’s

and their ever knowing

Who? Who!

 

Three sit on a branch,

only by happenstance,

Feathered wing tips touching

other feathers

 

The first one there

lightly reflecting in the night

More resembling the canary,

Looking out of the neighbor’s window

through its cage

 

The other, a more handsome color

With specks of a gold so orange

Shades that overlap and create

their own unidentifiable appearance

Almost camouflaged in the darkness,

Almost

 

But the last one is a smaller breed

Wearing the dark grays of shadows

appearing like a bunch of dried

leaves, if seen by glance in the night

The ghostly figure emanating the

gratitude of

Distinction that,

She can make those aware of her

only with the calling out of

Her monotone chirped voice:

Who? Who!

 

 

I am grateful for quotes: “The person whom you would like to do away with is of course never Mr. X but merely a disguise. If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn’t part of ourselves doesn’t disturb us…The things we see are the same things that are within us. There is no reality except the one contained within us. That is why so many people live such an unreal life. They take the images outside them for reality and never allow the world within to assert itself.” ❤

Soul

Standard

Staring into face, eyes that move in awareness;
a humanistic trait of tiny windows into the

abstract understanding of life
How could it not be there?

This word of attachment of superiority

or, comparison to that
Relating to the beast as true self feels instinct
Sees the pureness of Soul before the

crippling grip of intelligence weighs in
Like a bag of rocks, the heavier the more expensive
To compare cost of brain is like proving worth of goods
Forgetting the very core of oneself to

the point of complete misunderstanding
Of anything, including the very brain in question

of purpose of degree
With every fact crammed into tiny cranial spaces claiming ownership of

the random considerations one used to make
Do we miss these traits or inherently lose them,

like we lose the childlike wonderment of the everyday?
If seeing is feeling and even believing in having a soul at all,

Then of course animals have souls.
