Tyto Alba (Barn Owl)

Out of nowhere you appear
silent, shy predator of the night
top of the food chain
it is claimed.
You are everything I don’t know about you
a two second shriek
your outward stroke of power.
I watch from a distance
ghostly white
but you disappear quicker
than the frost when the sun comes out
to your nest in the loft.
