Paradise on Earth

A collection of poems by David Morin

The Snowy Owl

Like a silent whisper the snowy owl flew into a winter wilderness

A thin shallow mist stretched over part of an icy lochan

A narrow stretch of pine trees laden with snow stopped close to the waters edge

In front of her the snowy owl saw the panoramic view of twin mountains, features softened with heavy snowfalls

This white illumination of timeless wonder and beauty was home to the snowy owl

As silently she had come silently she went

Tomorrow would be just another day
