Night Owl

Framed in moonlight,
she scans the fields of night.

Visibility perturbs her not;
self-promotion is neither desired
nor required.

but little understood,
she is outstanding in her field.

Swift and silent
once chosen,
she takes possession
like none else can.

Acquaintance is short,
termination quick
and merciful.

Once you become hers,
you are now an
integral part of her.
