The owl looks with eyes so wide,
at all the stories passing by.
It sits there perched in all its grace,
gaining a higher perspective from this place.
Time has taught the owl to be wise.
Time has taught her to look through new eyes.
To see beyond the everyday scene.
To take a look at the in-between.
For to have arrived in this very place,
was to savour the moment without any haste.
To experience the journey of the past,
but no longer allow the pain to last.
For why live there when you can be here?
Looking through eyes that are so very clear!
