The structure and tone feel Old Norse to me, but the setting is southern. Or perhaps tropical. Tropical owls? That is just my reading of course. Anyways, I like it!
Old Norse eh? Thor is my all-time hero. The setting is New Jersey. We have Eastern Screech owls which have an incredibly eerie call. We have a mimosa tree that had a couple of blooms remaining. 'yog' is local slang for a cigarette. I have a vintage WWII ammo crate on my back porch. Wallace Stevens: 'A poem explained is a poem spoiled" Ha!
Sounds very 2am...Liked the poem and the ammo crate.
Great sensory snapshot you've painted. Love the mimosa blush.
@rallentanda & Ms. Ray: cheers. thanks for the read.
Gerry,I get the feel from these few words, that you were enjoying a wonderful moment at, 2am....Happiness at the very least!Best wishes from wet and windswept Cheshire!Eileen
@Eileen: Sleep is so overrated.
ha...sleep is over-rated. but, a haiku at 2:00? this is a nice piece, has a softness about it that i like.
@Harlequin: Well, there I was. Figgered why waste the moment. I did eventually go back to bed. Ha!
