Let me be like the screech owl chick

 

By Ana Lewis

 

let me be like the screech owl chick

whose first flight nightly is smack into the window

yet she rests, gathers her bearings and takes flight with gusto

 

let me be like the screech owl chick

who is fearless in the presence of humans

who lets curiosity rule

 

let me be like the screech owl chick

whose mother is ever present

and she knows she is safe

 

let me be like the screech owl chick

who loves her bath and takes her time

splashing and drinking

 

let me be like the screech owl chick

whose voice sings out

regardless of who is around

 

let me be like the screech owl chick

who spreads her wings

in the face of a gusty wind

 

let me be like the screech owl chick

who wears her downy feathers all askew

and she doesn’t really give a hoot

 

let me be like the screech owl chick

who is able to silently watch

and be in the moment
