Owls

Owl Mask3
Crystal Owl1
OWLonPedestal
Earthen Owl

In my lobby hundreds perch:
Facing front they’re all:
blinking, zooming, screeching, preening
Owls: gigantic, small.

Wear a mask; fly a puppet;
Owl my eyes; grasp a cane;
Sparkle glass; pierce a crystal;
Line them up: minor-main!

Sculptures staring, wood eyes glaring;
Wings poised to take flight;
Pull the string and glass wings beat
Fly to soar with raptor might.

    What a fun collection, Jeanne! Love your photos and the poem that goes along with it. There’s a lot of wisdom in that foyer!
