Great Grey Owl for Halloween



walking through the woods
feeling the soft give to the forest floor
even though it snowed 4 inches last night


looked up to watch snow plopping from trees above


there you were
a great grey owl
looking into my eyes



a calm majestic being
sitting at the meadow's edge
listening

watching
waiting

so perfect for Halloween
and
Samhain

lovely celebrations to one and all

  5. How wonderful. Have you ever seen the skeleton for these owls? They are the most tiny birds. The magnificent face feathering is just that, feathers, which act as an amplifier.

    They are truly amazing and what a penetrating stare.
