Owl Returns

Owl Returns
in the early morning hours
there was a hoot, hoot, hoot
three hoots, three times
twice for Owl returned
it feels important
soon the day of Owl
will become the day of Earth
is the wise one reminding us
it is the time of re-birth?
shedding her old skin
the Earth is rearranging
humanity’s ability to adapt
can enhance all that is changing
the beauty of each garden
the planting of the new
the waste not/want not
embraced in all we do
thank you Owl we hear you
and before you click on mute
we want you to hear us
we also give a hoot!
