Sleep Owl Sleep

Can you tell I didn’t sleep well last night? Worrying about things I can’t control. Yesterday walking into work, I, indeed, heard an owl calling in broad day light. He is working overtime this mating time of year. Maybe spring naturally tussles us all up as we wake up from winter and want spring to be more perfect than it can ever really be. Too much pondering. Best do something simple that I have control over like laundry.  Enjoy the stamp-poem.

Sleep Owl Sleep

The owl is grumpy
because he does not sleep.
Up all night hooting and hunting.
Even in the full morning light
yesterday, in town,
I heard him “hoot hoot”
calling for his girlfriend.
Settle down their Hoss.
Your super sensitive eyes, ears,
and quick mind
are always churning,
always worrying
But bottom line,
the world will never
run out of mice.
