An owl and the truth.

They say that rabbits are fast, 

but the owl took it from behind 

at a full run. A flutter of wings 

in the shadows of the pines. 


One day a young man told me 

that he sought only the truth. 

Then you’ve already found it, I told him. 

That was a lovely day. So is today. 

You know?


The real work of planet-saving will be small, humble, and humbling, and (insofar as it involves love) pleasing and rewarding. 

-Wendell Berry
