Eagles Flight

Soaring gracefully in wide open skies,
how I envy you.
Wings spread, uplifted in flight,
so free you are.
What do you see when you gaze down,
your vision so keen and sharp?
Do you see me as the person I really am...
Or so much more?
What currents direct your paths?
Against gentle breezes and strong winds,
you still take flight.

I can only watch in amazement,
watch as you soar.
You have no fear, no worry, no cares.
The skies are your home.
I close my eyes, lost in the fantasy;
imagine flying above with you

...And I canít help but dream of the day
when I too can soar.

We do soar in our dreams my friend as you do in the waking world.

You do fly high, Hoot, every time you write. Another well done effort.

What a beautiful offering to wake up to ... I think it's going to be a great day!

On a branch the hoot owl sits
ever watching, ever quick,
the eagle may soar
and not miss much
but the owl in patience
may notice more.

The hootie-owl sits at night
hearing motion, taking flight,
the eagle peruses land by light
but at dusk ends his flight.

In sun's beam I hear a screech on high
lift my eyes, view the sky
In dark, from the other, just like you,
I hear the question, soft, just "who?"

"Who" is the question, from whence words come,
"Who" is the answer, no thought left undone,
"Who" is the rhymer all poets adore?
why 'tis "Who-t"-owl-rn" does tribute adorn.
