Owl


short-eared durham owl
meditating over the dale's edge,
shadows the fields and folds
in elegant diurnal flight.

on windside,careful sight
may swoop to prey
and away.

your yellow broad-eyed look,
at once both sharp and distant,
holds me.
oh,silence,
oh ,wind on green,
oh. earth,
sky.

immense your held vision,
sphere without centre,
pied geometer of flight,
sketch your descent and ascent.

trees bunched by dry stone wall
call heart home.

    This reminds of this awesome animated movie called Legends of Ga'Hoole. It was about an owl trying to be free and take charge, etc. It was a genuinely great movie and I couldn't help but make the comparisons from that to this writing. The similarties with this writing of the Owl and of humanity are striking. People need to take a lesson from this. Beautiful setting you created.
