Owl Light

Aug 23rd, 2018 | By

Owl illustration and poem by Nimue Brown   Owl light, as we slip silently towards The end of day and sun comes soft and subtle, A honey kiss on leaf and Cotswold stone, Gilding the final hours, even as shadows Curve into valleys and stretch out long, Comfortable limbs, their backs to these hills And

Jul 27th, 2018 | By

By Nimue Brown I remember my first lunar eclipse. I was a teenager, and I sat on the doorstep of my grandmother’s house to watch the moon. She came out intermittently to see how things were progressing, but I watched the whole thing, very earnestly. My main memory of the experience is of how much
