Night of an Owl

There is an igniting spark in me,
Lighting my room at daring nights,
Nevertheless it break my windows,
And kept roaming sliding and dancing.

There is another unresolved quest in me,
Peeping and regretfully concealing,
For what I meant to be and what I am,
Here in this puzzling glare of greying nights.

Then as I sung a weary glided note,
It turned pale and stuck in my throat,
Slipping and stammering in my sense,
Fading and popping again disgustingly.

As day light shared a ray in this cage,
My eyes droops with peaceful slumber,
And the world around me raised afresh,
Calling me in their usual tone- Old owl.

      1. Dear Tushara Olivia,

        You seem to have been away for a long time. Welcome back to the blogosphere! Your very first post on your return is well done! I gladly resonate with the theme of your post by bringing you a wolf, an own and two moons as a gesture of my welcoming you.

        Thank you for visiting two of my recent posts. I have already responded to your comment with a bespoke reply at the post entitled “❄ ❅ ❆ Snowflakes, Tell Me Why You Are…“, which combines poetry, visual art, animations and science in an innovative way. I would like to inform you that this musical, animated and mixed media post is best viewed in situ on my blog (not via WordPress Reader) on a desktop or laptop computer with a large screen, given that it contains intricate graphical designs, advanced styling and multimedia components plus animations.

        There is another even more animation-intensive post resulting from my dramatic attempt to bring the Full Moon alive, so to speak, in the form of Music Animation with Dynamic Visualization presented in high definition and imbued with a scintillating full moon surrounded by eye-catching astronomical phenomena and stellar activities!

        The post has been recently expanded to contain twelve poetic stanzas constituting my rhyming poem entitled “If My Name Were Moon Tonight…“.

        As usual, in order to see all of the animations, please make sure that you view the post on my blog and not via the WordPress Reader. May you enjoy to your heart’s content the mixed-media offering of “If My Name Were Moon Tonight…” and its beautifully rendered Music Animation with Dynamic Visualization on the big high-resolution screen of your desktop or laptop computer. Switch the video playback to full-screen mode with a resolution of 1920 by 1080. The animation starts calmly and will gradually climax.

        There is also the opportunity to savour my own rendition of “Clair de Lune” recorded on the organ.

        I am very delighted by your return, as you have been missed.

        I am going to read your poem again for the third time. I am still somewhat mentally bathed in your atmospheric writing, which imparts a permeating sensation of a certain mystery and ambivalence. For some reason, I prefer the first two stanzas to the last two.

        Wishing you a productive Sunday doing or enjoying whatever that satisfies you the most!

        Yours sincerely,

      2. It’s really remarkable that you noticed my absence in the blogging world. I have already viewed some of your earlier post on full screen mode. As you told the experience is certainly amazing. And I will soon do the follow up of your link in big screen, as of now I was just enjoying reading the lyrical beauty! Very happy to hear that you felt my work worth enough to be read multiple times. Thanks a lot.😍
