The Owl and the Meditator

In the midst of meditation
Sinking into silence 
In the setting sun
Comes the haunting hoot
Of an obscure owl 
In the nearby autumn woods
Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo!
Echoing the quiet question 
Resonating in the recesses 
Of my primordial mind, 
Who, Who, Who, Who 
Am I?

    Question asked by all of us from time to time. Inside sometimes the voice says you really don't want to know. Sara

    yes. I used to have a tree on property where an owl would sit at dusk and ask that question, my dogs would wait in the field for the question...
