Follow the Owl

Owl of Minerva (cut off an old coin)

Owl of Minerva (cut off an old coin) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

She perched upon your hand
She whispered ‘Understand!’
She told you wisdom deep
Such secrets you could keep
You followed as she flew
To places no-one knew
These depths within her eyes
Minerva’s sweet disguise

I say, follow the owl
Her hooded eyes and cowl
The forest is so dark
A fire without spark
She wants to call your soul
She whispers ‘Come be whole!’
She’s perched upon your hand
She urges, ‘Understand!’

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  4. Great poem Helen. Owls and wisdom and the use of the word ‘understand’ sets up an amazing depth for me. Your poems often lead me to philosophical questions.
