Owl Poetry & Prose

Wisps of Solace

And while I lay half asleep, battling to awaken

She flew down gently and lay on the side of my head

A touch so gentle it shook the soul of my bed

And whispered the sweetest nothings in my ear

 

Of days gone by, of memories past

Of people I loved, of things that don’t last

And she wove these words in silence with wisps of air

As her gentle wings beat silently on my hair

 

And then in a trice when my soul was at ease

She took flight so softly like a gentle breeze

My sleep won the battle as I gently laid to rest

My thoughts that awoke me and put my soul to the test
