"Soul Searching" by Rebecca Zook
With eyes as big as the moon, the Great Horned Owl sees into your soul, unmasking the hidden and bringing forth wisdom. He guides you to new heights on silent wings.
Everyone in the neighborhood knew my house when I was a kid. My Dad’s giant HAM radio tower couldn’t be missed. At Christmas, it was the house with the tower topped by a Great Horned Owl. I’m not positive what attracted him there at winter only, but we used to say, it was the Christmas lights. You could see them reflected in his eyes. He’d take flight and swoop low following our street, his wingspan seemingly spanning the width of the road. Completely silent in flight. I can’t think of a Great Horned Owl without this scene coming to mind.
