Who Am I ?





I am considered an oracle of secret knowledge
many seek me to obtain mystical wisdom

I  am kin to sorcerers  & companion to seers
possessing  perfect vision  in the nocturnal world

I am a messenger in the shadows of dreams
my  missive, taking flight in the realm of night

I am a hunter in the wilderness, seeking my prey
strong talons, feasting  on lizards, birds & mice

I  am able to speak the language of the trees
wind , moon & stars,  as I circle the heavens

I am a bridge between two worlds, listen
& hear my chortles in your spiritual ear

I am full of mystery & I will guide you
through darkness with my keen eyesight

If you meet me on the journey of life
listen carefully to my words for they
are meant especially for you...

    1. Good Morning Grace,

      Since the bird is nocturnal it would not be an eagle but, the eagle holds many of the same symbolic interpretations. Thanks for the comment.

    1. haha Brian well, I guess from the first picture I posted Google might come to mind. I had to take the pic down my blog did not like it much as it took up too much space..lol..the owl is full of mysticism and fits in well with Harry Potter. I saw some of the movies and they were full of adventure.

  7. Not sure which culture you are tapping into here. Can't see google with talons or even wisdom :-)

    1. Hi Aprille,

      I am not tapping into one particular culture I decided to just go with the various symbolism attached to the bird. The owl means many things in different cultures. For me the owl has brought some powerful messages and warnings so when one enters my life I come to full attention. Thanks for visiting :-)

    2. --and the word kn OWL edge-- gives it away as well :-)
      We have a White Owl flying very low over the garden each early dusk. It sometimes touches my hair with its wake of air and that never fails to awe me.

    3. Hi Aprille,

      I do like that word..how clever of you to see the "owl" in it. Oh, I would so like to see a white owl how magical to have one hover over your garden. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Okay, I was wondering about a nocturnal animal but not quite very much so.
    But the thought of Artemis had made its presence in my mind throughout because of the nocturnal and wild images in the poem.
    Interesting though... yes an owl appears to be quite wise, what with those orb-like eyes and the hooting in the night.

    1. Hello,

      I found your comment quite interesting as Artemis is the Greek goddess of the wild-land & mistress of animals. I hadn't thought of her in a while. Thank you for that insight.

  10. You may have riddled the owl, but I feel you have written more of yourself than you let on "..listen carefully to my words because they are meant especially for you.." indeed :) ~wonderful imagery~ peace, Jason

  11. Owl, I think too... A powerful totem to have (not saying she's yours, but I too read what Jason saw)..

    A beautifully powerful write, Trudessa!

  14. Thought you were going all hawk
    But as I continued to gawk
    Seems like an owl
    That you gave a howl
    But then you like the moon
    So under it the owl may swoon

    1. You know I adore the hawk
      and often stop to gawk
      whenever he is flying around
      but, today the owl wanted
      to have his say so I went
      with the flow & gave it a go..

  17. In some Native American traditions, the hawk is considered the messenger, but in reading this the owl came clearly into my mind. I love the symbolism of totems.

    1. Hi Victoria,

      Yes, the hawk is indeed a messenger and one of my favorite raptors. He is constantly making his presence in my life. I do not take that lightly. Thanks for the visit.

  19. Beautifully done! 'Owl' came to mind immediately, mainly because my neurons linked 'knowledge' to 'Athena' and then to the bird that symbolizes her. After that hit in the first stanza, it seemed to fit all the others.

  21. I have no clue, but the words were lovely! I was walking on a high plains dirt road this morning and watching hawks fly, so these words really struck home:
    I am a hunter in the wilderness, seeking my prey
    strong talons, feasting on lizards, birds & mice
    Have a good one!

    1. Good Afternoon,

      I saw hawks today as well they seem to follow me
      so, I wonder what they have to say this day. My
      riddle leads to the path of the wise owl.
