Dangerous Encounters


Early Morn
Waves caress the shoreline
The Smell of the lake

A Child
Hands buried within the sand
A cool, gentle breeze

An Eagle
Two vulnerable creatures
Both afraid and in awe

Juju


This is just a story from my child hood

-Juju

-"So you found a girl
Who thinks really deep thoughts
What's so amazing about really deep thoughts " Silent all these Years, Tori Amos

Except for the confusion of this line, Juju, "Hands buried with in the sand" I completely understand this poem.
Oh, I thing the line I pointed out isn't confusing after all. Maybe the line should have been read, "Hands buried within the sand." It was the separation of "with" and "in" that confused me. Sorry.

LOVE this, Juju!  I can understand the fear of the eagle (although I am too stupid to understand the fear of the child) but, OH, so OH, I feel the awe and the momentary bond - as strong as steel and as sensitive as a thread of a spider's web - of the eagle and the child.  How do I stop reading your poem?  Did you set it on permanent repeat?
