Owl at the Pond

Owl at the pond

big as my small dog

puffs out feathers

wets face

always looking around

It sees me in kitchen

watching as it goes

deeper into the water

shaking feathers



water on its back

breast deep now

looking around

repeats face wash again

and again

wings spread

then gone

    Wonderful! I used to work this dreadful job overnight in a rechargeable battery factory. There were two things I liked about that job. There was a guy there who was a recovering gambling addict, and I enjoyed talking to him. Then there was an owl that I would see in a tree outside on my breaks.
    When I look back on things, it wasn’t the worst job I’ve had, it was just tremendously repetitive.
    I love owls, which is one of the reasons why I came up with my handle, Ornery Owl.
