Owl

Rose
Isaac at Breakfast

We sit opposite ends of the family table, mother and son. His head slides like an owl — face always forward, gliding left to center, right to center.

Move and stop. Move and stop.

I puzzle at the movement, confused, then smile at his visual joke.

Ah, his head frames the rose.
