The Great Horned Owl
Perches silently in the bare birch tree (sorry no photos of an owl yet)
A sentinel, watching, waiting
Unhurried, we both soak up the sunshine
I'm on a break from doing my wash this Saturday morning
We both pause to give thanks for this new day.
Owls have been my allies for decades
Reminding me to be observant, and honor times when silence
Is truly a blessing, and taking a higher perspective is often wise.
He has flown off now, free to roam as he chooses!
