Please Do Give a Hoot




The owl gives a hoot,

By the moon's silvery light.

in darkness of night.






A wise sage to watch,

The world to be viewed below,

as time moves so slow.







He sits in lofty trees,high,

as a regal king,

The woods, his royalty brings.






With golden eyes, bright,

He sees with the finest sight,

on guard, till day's light.







Prey is what he seeks,

Then to swoop, his wings to beat,

tasty mouse, to eat.







The owl, nature's way,

To sleep by light of the day,

in his tree to stay.

      Very nicely done...you've captured the regal owl in your haiku, one more captivating than the next. I agree with Sunnie, your pictures are lovely!

      Voted up, aweseome, and interesting.

      I’ve always been fascinated with owls; they are so mysterious and love the night.

      I enjoyed your Haiku and pictures...my favorite lines:

      “He sits in lofty trees,high,

      as a regal king,

      The woods, his royalty brings”

      Up and sharing. :-)
