The owl called Grand Father

An omniscient owl, a sublunary being with the characteristics of outer space

In the gnarly tree is an owl called Grand Father
who can talk, though not everyone knows
he talks,
to most he's just known to follow folks
with his eyes, two suns eclipsed,
head rotating as they move along.
Rats, cats and dogs don't exist within his orbit,
His wings darkening midnight. 
He never asks who 
because because he already knows
the answer, relaying it to whoever's worthy,
his only companions the stars.
