Owl and Wolf Go Canoeing

Words:  flew, merry, sun, chill, itch, wolf, slim, swagger, owl, cloak, tendril, chance

Merry owl,
and slim-cloaked
wolf tossed off
the tendrils of
last night’s chill.
Sun shone upon
the land, and the
two swaggering
fellows were itching
for a chance to go
canoeing. Owl wisely
thought ahead. If
problems arose,
he could easily fly
away. Wolf, being
a champion swimmer
knew the lake was
no match for him.
Each trusted the
other for rescue.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    And I wonder if they both make it to dry land – this really reads as a fable
