The Chorus of the Sleeping Sounds

This morning's harvest moon - October 2015
This morning’s harvest moon – October 2015

I woke in the early morning

hours to hear our nearby

Hoot owl hooting.

I thought,

“I haven’t heard the

Night owl

Since the last

Full moon.

Is there something

About its’ light

That makes him

Croon his tune?”

poem by denisebalog


Waking this morning

To remember a

Little poem I wrote

Last month,

Under another


Harvest Moon.

September's Harvest Moon -2015
September’s Harvest Moon -2015

“There’s silence all around.

Soft breathing,

Sleeping sounds.

Then I hear

The Hoot Owls’ call.

Did he sleep the night

At all?

Does he watch the

Night away?

Sleeping at the

Break of day?

Mr. Hoot Owl sing your song;

Calling me to join along.

Amidst the darkness and

The stars,

He hoots another chorus bar.”

“The LORD is your Keeper;

the LORD is your shade 

on your right hand.

The sun shall not strike

you by day,

nor the moon by night.

The LORD will keep you

from all evil;

He will keep your life.

The LORD will keep 

your going out and

your coming in

from this time 

forth and 


Psalm 121:5-8 (ESV)


A Song of Ascents

sung by pilgrims walking 

many miles to 

“go up to Jerusalem”

for the yearly feasts.

The Lord is so sweet to

have provided them 

bright moon lite nights

while sleeping outside

far from the safety

of their homes.

  1. The Post with a poem to convey and a title apt to the post.
    “The Chorus of the Sleeping Sounds”
    Just think of the title and shall the chorus begin.
    Sleeping Sounds heard.
    Then the chorus diminishes and a Sound Sleep shall be a fact.
    Love to YOU!

  2. “The wolf and the lamb will graze together, the child will put his hand into the den of the venomous snake because no evil will be done because the knowledge of the Lord will fill the earth.” Is.11 With God all of creation is beautiful! I love how your owl sings in your poems! 🙂

    1. I Love the visual and promise of the wolf and the lamb:) Yes, creation in living color. My son and I share, God could have made the world black and white and we would have never known the difference. Oh the love our Father has for us and ALL His creation! Thank you for stopping by:) blessings, d


  3. A beautiful reflective journey. Here we are coming into our hotter months and threat of bushfire there is a difference hue to the same moon. Different bird calls. Love your writing.
