Owl operas

  1. 1. Owl Operas & Other Nocturnal Musingsmardi 11 décembre 12
  2. 2. I dont want to go to bed right now Its much too ridiculously early. The night is still young, creative and fun; My mind is exploding with things. The knitting, the paintings, and reading, just some There arent enough hours to get it all done.mardi 11 décembre 12
  3. 3. The darkness and silence Conducive to thoughts Stretch out like a canvas from dusk until dawn. A vast empty surface Awaiting my drafts Expecting the first strokes laid down.mardi 11 décembre 12
  4. 4. The evenings not only for crafts and creatives. Within the dark silence Our forrest it thrives. An ear out the window And what might you hear But an owl serenading his wives. Though cloaked in the darkness Their voices still carry. Their operatic melodies Strung high in the trees. In trees in the distance, from branches near by The owls no one ever does see.mardi 11 décembre 12
  5. 5. And taking a jaunt to the paint room you want Not to meet with the skunk Who could pay you a visit. He might be with the coons Underneath the full moon But his eyesights not very good, is it? One cant easily guess Whose the one whos most stressed If we two so should meet on the paths. Best I pay him adieu, hurry off, toodle-loo. Cause if he is surprised Ill be wanting a bath.mardi 11 décembre 12
  6. 6. Never mind all the critters Theres a light show upstairs. Lift your eyes to the starry bright heavens above. And if lucky you are Youll be seeing some stars Streaking madly for all those you love. I like being awake When my neighbors are sleeping. I like painting When everyone dreams. I cant fall into bed With a muse in my head. Theres a nap in my future It seems.mardi 11 décembre 12
  7. 7. All of this I might miss If I fell off to sleep Long before all the stars Are secure in the sky. I do pay in the day For the evenings I play Creativity It doesnt come cheap. Kelly Burke • Moi Plus Chats • California USAmardi 11 décembre 12
