Where Eagles Fly
~Marge Tindal~ 2000

There is a place where Eagles fly,
their wings majestically spread.
High above the clouds,
soaring the sky overhead.

They hunt with a hunger,
eyes keenly watching for prey.
They suddenly swoop earthward,
to feed another day.

The Eagle in all his wonder,
is a survivor for all to behold.
He'll take what he needs
when he needs it ...
that's the story that's been told.

Defender of those who are in need.
Surveyor of the land and the sea.
I'm glad to have the Eagle
watching over me.



*Special thanks to Helmut Becker
for inspiration.

I'd really love to see that one day....it must be a beautiful sight from the sounds of your lovely poem!

Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

Beautiful Marge! You're such a sweetheart because, some people would just have said it was all their idea.

Denise -
The eagle flying and searching
is simply awesome.  I hope you can
see it one day.

Nate-
How interestiing ... well, I can tell
you that inspiration is about 80% of
my writing.  Someone ... someplace ...
something ... stirs the inkwell and
poof !  The muses start their magic.
As I read your works ... I see the
inspiration coming from the people you
see and write about.  
Right on ..... or write on !
LOL !
Thanks, guy !

The eagle shall soar for you evermore
in glamerous flighing splendor
I love this poem so a flight I'll aim
But i'm sad, for I must on the ground remain
The only way for me to dream
I read again the poem there on the screen
Thanks Marge, I like it very much


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Your spirit is forever strong
and here is where the eagle
does belong
each day
they are put to the test
as you look to the sky
see an eagle flying high
standing still
you listened
to the eagle's song
feeling as one
you knew something was wrong
you closed your eyes
and listened
to the eagle's cries
not knowing
the eagle's mate
was on the ground
as she slowly dies
nothing left to do
majestically
spreading wings
you soar off
into the blue..

HUSG

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.
