Mackie and the Owl

Dr Abe V Rotor
 Mackie before a wall mural by the author at her home in Lagro QC   2015

Mackie used to be afraid of the owl,
       imagined or on the screen.
and would fling into embrace blind
       until it is no longer seen.

The creature would appear in the dark,
       in her favorite cartoon;
by its hooting in the hollow of a tree,
       she would freeze like stone. 

Until I captured the scary creature
       with paint brush on the wall,
where kids could talk to and touch;
      now the owl is a friend to all. ~
