OWL THOUGHTS — 6 p.m. POLE FARM OCTOBER

Great Horned Owl by Brenda Jones

Great Horned Owl by Brenda Jones

(with honor to splendid poet, Joy Harjo)

 

OWL THOUGHTS

 

she heard some owls

who were distant and peremptory

and would not be gainsaid

 

she was searching

for the harrier

a fox

sight or sound of coyote

(though scat would do)

the black bear of last Monday

 

it was dusk

sun swallowed

only tatters

of a pewter sky

 

owl murmurs

filled forests

as light

had washed the sky
