Strix the Crooner


A new owl found in Oman,
Strix omanensis - maybe name,
Found by humans who get it on
With bird listening as the aim.
The first time the Strix song was heard,
The tune, familiar, yet unique.
Humans just had to see this bird
That sang this song from 'neath its beak.
And so the humans patiently,
Like paparazzi, lurked at night,
Till the elusive owl did be
A combo in sound and in sight.

Halloweenish - all orange eyed,
The owl sings, 'Here comes the bride.'

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
