For day 20 of National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) “I challenge you to write a poem that uses at least five of the following words:…” I chose to use owl, miraculous, elusive, ghost, twice.

SIGHTING OWLS

Owls can be elusive

camouflaged by surroundings.

Most are nocturnal

flying silently in the dark.

Like a ghost they swoosh by.

Twice while out walking

I’ve heard owl hoots,

but dusk was closing in,

I could not see it.

Owl’s have forward-facing eyes,

they can only see straight ahead.

They can swivel their whole head

almost completely around

to see beside or behind them.

That’s miraculous.
