Midnight Shadows

Sleep broken by rumors of small ghosts,
a Screech Owl wakes, moving lightly
through midnight shadows.

    WOW! Like the one ring, magic.

    It is not a just an owl eye, there is also some dark atmosphere which surrounds it.
    ‘Magnificent’ and ‘Wow!’ are the words which come to my mind.
