An Owl TankaCreature of the nightAn Owl Tanka by Agent36496
Neither angel nor demon
With eyes dark as night itself
And thoughts uncertain
Swift as any wind
Mysterious like a ghost
Watching and stalking
Making every chance count
"Is all, chance or fate?"
Sensing in the air
The quiet one, embraces
Such brilliance here
Making one cry happily
To beauty and hope
A Little Owl's StoryA Little Owl's Story by InaliaFox
A pair of Saw-Whet Owl's had three eggs. Two of them hatched when they were supposed to, however, the final one didn't hatch with them. Three weeks passed, and the egg finally hatched. He was small, and very week. His siblings were already almost ready to learn how to fly.
He looked up to his older siblings, but was jealous and envied the fact that they could fly. He started doubting himself, but his family tried to keep him positive. He tried the best he could, but even when the time came, his wings were too small and they would not lift him off the ground.
All the other animals in the forest laughed at him and said he wasn't an owl if he couldn't fly. They teased him day after day, but his family tried to defend him the best they could. Finally, the teasing got so bad, the little owl just couldn't take it anymore. He decided to leave the nest, just as his siblings had done many weeks before. His parents were against it, but he wanted to go somewhere that no one woul

"Right, Eve, I want you to span your wings out like this," explained Zoltus as he stretched his grey wings out into the mystifying fog. Only the thick black and white barred marking of his wings pierced through the darkness. "When you do this you can feel the air curling around your wings. You must feel for this, as this is the life of flight. Learn to shape the wind at your will and you will master flight," positively spoke Zoltus standing in the damp grass that came half way up his breast.
Breathing in deeply he felt the cool air fill his lungs. He was prepared to teach this young owl everything he knew as a Guardian. Looking out across the clearing at the gloomy forest he knew that within the nocturnal darkness brewed danger. A danger in which would soon spill poison throughout the known owl kingdoms. In the Timber Woods of Zephyr Eve was safe.
Like a perched ghost, Eve gazed through the heavy haze with dark eyes, as black as polished stones. She s

Flying silently above the Forest Kingdom of Tyto, Eve could feel the frosty wind curling around the tips of her flight feathers as she glided effortlessly through the midnight sky; inhaling the fresh air she breathed it out slowly creating soft smoke that faded into the frigid air. The air was bitterly cold yet energizing, she felt free as any fully fledged owl. Feeling calm her gaze leisurely moved smoothly across the immense canopy of fir trees, they seemed endless to her as they faded off into the mist. She never realised how remarkable it felt to be able to soar through the sky. Mist rose up from the darkness blurring out the waning gibbous moon and stars. Looking across her wing she saw no down. Her flight almost seemed to move in an automatic fashion as she didn't have to think about it.
"I- I Am flying!" exclaimed Eve excited as she peered down into the darkness below, looking at the vegetation through the canopy of trees. With her acute heari
