Detail of "The Old Moon Remembers", by J Michael Walker, 2001

All the long 101 way home

Tonight

All the long 101 way home:

 

The moon,  

Large cream-gold

Old-friend of calm.

 

Pulling onto the driveway,

Behind silhouette trees

A horned owl asserts herself

 

Hooting

Four-note verses

Unhurried, soft  

Against freeway’s wild wash.

 

– Composed tonight, upon coming home.

  2. Dear Boob,
    Not all entries are intended to refer to, or provide information about, the saint upon whose feast day they are posted – although several entries do this.

    That said, however, you can learn more about Saint Helen in Part ii of my post for this date, here:
