filled with wisdom and guise
peering into distant space
with fearsome grace
you freely share your beauty
have we the eyes to see our duty
to ask the cooperation of nature
and find our proper nomenclature
Mythology and folklore ascribe both good and bad omens to owls. Some Native Americans consider them to be omens of sickness and death, while other cultures like the Greeks believe owls to be carriers of wisdom. Maybe owls are simple mirrors to our own dualistic mind, forever pairing good against evil. This wonderful owl photo comes from Cindy Knoke, a gifted photographer, and lover of nature. I sincerely hope that we find the wisdom to live in harmony with nature.
