The Parliament of Owls Will Now Come to Order

Nine owls swoop through the dark summer night forests of this bracelet, amid leaves and gemstones, moons, and magic.  They gather on this night for their annual parliament.  




It is the night when owls speak, and hear each others' tales of the year.  


It is a time to share recipes ~ rodent ratatouille, mouse mousse, bunny tarts...


They complain of witches who don't hold their familiars in high enough esteem, who only use them for spells and never ask their opinions, who admire their plumage but never bother discussing wiccan philosophies with them...



They congratulate colleagues who have starred in yet another Harry Potter film, and marvel about barn owls with live video feeds...


They bemoan the fact that, as nocturnal creatures, they miss all sorts of daylight activities, like swim parties and Sunday brunch...


They recommend favorite chiropractors who help them turn their heads further to compensate for their fixed eyes...



They compare feather designs, always in search of better sound abatement wing feathers...


They commission owl cobblers to fashion better slippers for their zygodactyl feet...



They practice make-up tips to make their beaks appear smaller...



...and plan ways of looking their best when swooping past a full moon on Halloween night.
