How often does a burrowing owl get a shower?
-- I wonder.
I am watching some burrows as the first raindrops fall;
Only one small owl is out there, alone like me.
"Here we are, little friend."
He spreads his wings as the light rain begins,
And he is looking up, ignoring me.
“Are you giving thanks?”
-- No answer,
So I pull out my prayer beads
And give thanks for both of us.
Just in case.
