House of Feathers

The feathers on the house are owl's

silent striated wing feathers

tucked into tile and rough cedar siding

the house is nocturnal

windows wide-eyed unblinking

sentient while others sleep while

full moon also wide-eyed unblinking

sees gathered clouds passing over

the moss on the roof is thick and quiet

bathing in rain and mist and fog

gathered clouds are also quiet

if in a dream

the house were to fly

free from foundation

silent as an owl

slow as moss grows

through gathered clouds

around full moon wide-eyed unblinking

would the house remember the dream

or even the feather

Wow, this is a magical, sleepy, and lyrical read - which sets the perfect tone for the topic of dreaming. Beautiful!
