Owl

Owl

Slowly I opened my eyes

But the night has

Gone by

Seems like a vivid

Dream

Had everything so

Clear in it

The colors seemed

So bright

Engulfed by its

Clarity I flew

Flew like a free

Spirit

Free with a glee in

My heart

But now…

My night is over

The colors are gone

I sit alone

Welcoming the light

Of the day

Which hurts my eyes

And breaks my

Heart

    1. Its because for the owl the night is the time where he can see everything clearly and his heart fills with hope in it, but as the day starts he cant see clearly and has to wait for the night to come again, the night is his day, he is not like the other birds, he is different and he cant help it because he was made that way, now if the title of the poem was Eagle or Parrot the night part would have then been replaced by day and day by night hence vice versa……. the world thinks the owl is weird but its just the way he is. 🙂

      1. Thank you dear for the detailing. Yes, I completely missed this idea that for the owl, night is day and day is night. Now all the dots are connected. The poem seems more and more wonderful in complete sense.
        Stay Blessed! 🙂
