Oracle of Wisdom Hoots

pic credit - my own
High upon a mountaintop
nestled in fragrant pines
hidden mystical owl's nest

beyond the veil of full moon
an oracle of wisdom hoots
bring me your hopes & dreams

open your heart, feel the magic
discover the mystery of night
walk  upon  green mossy trails

inside an old gemstone mine
spirited dragon bird slumbers
unfurl your  mighty wings, arise

perched high the owl chortles
awakening the sleeping beast
drums echo through the cavern

into the fire release your wishes
forest nymph dances with delight
captivated by the dragon's song

unleashing primordial power
guardian of the celestial world
healing crevices of the heart

spring's breath, hatching love
from the yolk of lofty dreams
soaring on wide wings...


sharing with Poets United

author's note: This is part
of a mystical adventure
a dream perhaps...

    1. Hi Jae Rose,

      That last stanza is my favorite. In an owl's nest there should be a hatching of lofty dreams.
