My heart sank
the day I didn’t see
Barn Owl’s white legs
in the corner of the barn.
Had it gone?
I searched
rafters,
corners;
couldn’t find it.
For several days,
I searched
for its
hiding place.
And then, yesterday,
atop a ladder,
in plain sight,
there it was!
And is there again,
today.
What strong claws,
legs–
to stand atop a ladder,
sleeping,
all day.

Barn Owl
in the barn
again
brings such
gladness.
