I wrote this poem back in 2013 and decided to revised it for the prompt today on a poem about an animal.
Beyond years a look so old
Resting in a tree high
A wise old owl is near.
Gazes out with black eyes like coal
Sits wise old owl upon his perch
Waiting and watching peacefully.
A catch of moment from below
Wise old owl takes keen interest
Waiting; staring for it appear.
Small animal darts out in fright
Now wings and talons now display
Wise old owl swoops down below
To find dinner is ready at last.
