Little owl

She is of twilight
Dim duskiness, mist and fog
Fast feathered frowner.

She’s crepuscular
Tiny, inky and half lit
Moon haloed huntress.

“Little owls aren’t common in London but they can be found, mainly on the city’s outer edges.  These types of owls are crepuscular, which means they’re most active at dawn and dusk.  I wrote the piece as a double haiku, as it seemed to suit the little owl’s pint-sized proportions well” – Helen Babbs
