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.
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.
