“It was great to see the owls,” I said.
“Yes. They’re wild things, of course. Killers, savages. They’re wonderful.”
― David Almond, Skellig
I call your name to the sky
And here you are, once more
Looking down at me from on high
As if to say, “Yes, Bella is my name.”
And my ordinary life as I know it,
Will never be the same.

Author’s Note: My beautiful friend the owl has returned. I will call her Bella. I am blessed to be graced with her presence and I treat every time that I see her as if it will be my last, because it may well be.
