She decided to write a poem

Outside, lit cigarette in hand

(What story shall I tell?)

Distraction—a periwinkle sky

A feather floated gently to Earth

(A friendly sign?)

Distraction—the tree branch

She met an owl’s gaze

(Hello, wise friend)

His eyes replied “I see you, 

You too, are wise.”

(Thank you for the gift)

Distraction—he looks to the sky

Her eyes meet the moon

(Shall I share this?)

Distraction—he flies away

A second feather floats to Earth

(Thank you again, wise friend.)
