NaPoWriMo Day 20 – Working from a List

Today’s NaPoWriMo challenge was to write a poem that incorporates at least five words from this list. I used nine.

At midnight
upwind of the dusky pine grove
the hoot of an owl flutters
through my bedroom window.
It curls onto my pillow
mercurial and elusive as a ghost.
Whoo Whoo, it asks twice,
are you to squander
your one miraculous existence?

And now, to break up the monotony of all the recent text-heavy posts, a baby burrowing owl, maybe 4 inches tall. One and I found him (her?) in the parking lot one day. Does s/he look philosophical and judgmental?

    • Oh, no. I think we all feel that way sometimes, especially at the end of the day. XO. Love you more than you know!
