Watching (O.S.I.)

Happy New Year!

I am writing this poem for O.S.I. and the theme is watching.

A boy entreated the universe
To bear its secrets
In the night sky
To gleam metaphors
From the stars
Spin verse and poetry
From the winged crickets
In the wild grass

The foolish boy demanded
Hollered and scowled
At the tall, black trees
That guarded his house
And the owl's hoot
Brought the lad back
To his senses

The moon watched
Dipped his top hat
Into a river
That rippled new light
And chased the boy
Through a field of fireflies
Read him a story
Kissed the boy goodnight
