Haibun Monday @dVerse Poets

On the rural route up to the mountains there’s much to see. Horses grazing in fields, and farm houses with red barns and silohs. It’s really like driving through a postcard setting. I’ve seen crows on the side of the road picking at a carcass, and a majestic eagle soar from it high perch keeping an eye on them. But, I’ve yet to see a snow owl. Their domain is the dark of night, while the earth sleeps under a blanket of snow. Though I’ve not seen them, they might have seen me. When the snow on the ground makes light the night. And I slip out onto the porch into the arms of the night. So, I wait for that someday when I get to experience seeing or hearing a snow owl. Till then they live in my imagination.

a hoot here, then there
in the shadows of the moon –
snow owl’s made a match

  3. I’m with you. There is such a beautiful mystique about a snowy night and I love to just gaze at its beauty. I did learn, however, from a few bloggers who know more about snowy owls than I do, that they hunt in the day!

  4. You have to know where they live and keep an eye out as they are daytime hunters. I’ve seen one twice – briefly. It may even have been the same one. I love the images in this haibun and the haiku is lovely.

  5. I have seen a few owls, but not a snowy owl. They have been few and far between and definitely a treat when I do get to see them. Sounds like a beautiful place…well worth a postcard.

    Thanks for dropping in.
