The owls caterwaul

the Barred Owls caterwaul

Open the window invite the jungle

sound in on moist night air

Give way to the asphalt

of the day, release

Let it flow back out riding

on the beams of the half moon

as the curtains

are sucked tight against

the screen

Day 17 at NaPoWriMo suggests writing a Nocturne, 
which is a musical piece. We turn one art form
into another!


A wild soul writing poetry & fiction while teaching high school literature, all with a camera in tow.
