Truth like an owl

"What is out of view only opens 
into something knowable 
if I wait and try to listen to what is there.  

If it takes a while, it's because 
some aspects of truth are shy like owls 
who don't like to be seen during the day.  
It seems that intuitive listening 
requires us to still our minds 
until the beauty 
of things older than our minds 
can find us."

A rather stern look from that owl but perfect paired with Mark Nepo's piece.
