fly, look up

Poetry Friday: Screech Owl by Ted Kooser

All night each reedy whinny
From a bird no bigger than a heart
Flies out of a tall black pine
And, in a breath, is taken away
By the stars. Yet, with small hope
From the center of darkness
It calls out again and again.

- Screech Owl by Ted Kooser
