Snowy Owl..

Coming down
out of the freezing sky
with its depths of light,
like an angel,
or a buddha with wings,
it was beautiful
and accurate,
striking the snow and whatever was there
with a force that left the imprint
of the tips of its wings…
five feet apart…and the grabbing of its feet,
and the indentation of what had been running
through the white valleys
of the snow…

Mary Oliver,
from her poem "White Owl Flies Into and Out of the Field" 1990
