Nocturne (Correlation)

by Roy K Austin
(Dorset England)

As if the quiet moon
had hypnotised the wood
to give it mood,
her secondary light
silhouettes the owl
that blinks with one lid
the sunlight in the dark !
What aeons forged
it’s silent passage
to alight unnoticed,
poised like a star
on the voids abyss
to perch on a bough !
What conjured up
that spell - cast form
to present it for night,
and that tremulous call -
the most lunar song of all !
To fly unhurried on it's way
though seldom by the light of day -
from shade to shade pure spirit
as if the turning world, knew it ?
