13 Owl Flying extra I’m hard at work putting together Owl Light, my next collection of speculative short stories. Owls and darkness play a role in each tale. And as in my 1st collection, The Greener Forest, I’ll be using a few poems and illustrations for transitions between the stories.

While researching owls and owl folklore, legends, and superstitions, I came across lots of fascinating information. Much of that info found its way into the stories and poems.

Owl fact: While most owls are nocturnal, a few species feed during the day or at dusk. (Therefore, owl light is from dusk to dawn).

Next, a lovely quote about an owl moon: “You don’t need anything but hope. The kind of hope that flies on silent wings under a shining owl moon. ” – Author Unknown

Lastly, a poem by Edward Hershey Richards many of us have heard before. In my case, a warning issued by grown-ups, because I was a chatterbox as a child!

The Wise Owl

A wise owl lived in an oak.

The more he saw, the less he spoke.

The less he spoke, the more he heard.

Why can’t we all be like that wise old bird?

Update: now available, Owl Light.
