    Praying for you, all the family. Home from the visitation I heard the poem White Owl Flies…. by Mary Oliver, and it seemed so comforting thinking of Jean. I’ll try to attach it here in case you agree.

    White Owl Flies Into and Out of the Field

    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
    thrust of its feet,
    and the indentation of what had been running
    through the white valleys
    of the snow—

    and then it rose, gracefully,
    and flew back to the frozen marshes,
    to lurk there,
    like a little lighthouse,
    in the blue shadows—
    so I thought: maybe death
    isn’t darkness, after all,
    but so much light
    wrapping itself around us —as soft as feathers—
    that we are instantly weary
    of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes,
    not without amazement,
    and let ourselves be carried,
    as through the translucence of mica,
    to the river
    that is without the least dapple or shadow—
    that is nothing but light—scalding, aortal light—
    in which we are washed and washed
    out of our bones.

    –Mary Oliver
