I am charmed by your poem. It poetically links writing with creativity at night, the owl being symbolic of wisdom and knowledge, as well as night time being the time for romance. 'Nod' seems to suggest sleep, as dreaming is part of the creative process too. I enjoyed the first line's alliteration as well.

    Thank you, Lisa May. I think
    with many poets, writers, and
    other creative people, the
    nocturnal hours are usually
    quieter to pen what inspires
    them. I'm glad you like the
    poem, I really appreciate the
    5 star review. Many blessings to you. ~

It sounds like the owl is the muse in this writer's romance with words, idea & blank pages. My muse is the spider. The Native American meaning for Spider is creativity. If I do not see a spidie sometime during the day, I am hard to write. This is cleverly written as if you are channelling from the Shakespearean era.

    Thank you, Liz. This is a very
    thoughtful review. I love the
    nocturnal, and owls are to me, one of the classic symbols of the dark and mysterious, along with bats
    and wolves. Many of us bards at times wake up in the
    wee hours with inspiration to
    write. That is fascinating info
    you wrote about spiders
    and the Native American meaning of creativity. Many
    blessings to you. ~
