Hoot

I hear her call and am drawn further along the path
I pick my way towards the sound of her wise voice

"Hoot", she said.

I just needed to see her
Soft feathers against the dark, black night sky

I just needed to be in her presence
And soak up the waves of wisdom radiating off her

I draw close and I can see her now
She turns her head and looks down at me with her big, clear eyes

I blink and see her intelligence reflected there in those eyes
I yearn for her to speak to me

"Hoot", she says.

All of my questions become still in my mind
As I gaze up at her loveliness

We look at each other and suddenly I know
I don't need her to tell me what to do

I have a wisdom all of my own

I grew stronger on my journey here
I learnt things I would never have known if I'd remained at home

I continued to stare into her clear eyes
As she continued to stare into mine

"Hoot", she said.
