An Eagles Revelation
~~~


At dawns early light
a frozen tick
fell from an eagle
dropping gently
past a shear cliff face
only to be caught
by brisk winds
sweeping through a mountain valley
and lifted
to the sheer heights
of the crystal blue ionosphere
~
Then drifted down lazily
through a lingering cloud
with moisture bonding
crystalline to its' form
increasing in size
and stature
'till dawns' reflecting light
glistened
from a tiny
frozen
ice diamond
no larger than a flea
~
Then shot back to the heavens
on a passing jet-stream
collecting toxic fuel residue
from an iron eagle
further increasing its' frozen density
before descending earthward
in a projectile type manner
approximately the size
and shape
of a pea
~
Its' speed increasing
to terminal velocity
before slamming into the snow-capped top
of a Rocky Mountain peak
causing the slow growth of a snowball
as it commenced to roll and bounce and tumble
with descending gravitational attraction
toward an enormous
menacing
snow bound overhang
that shook and exploded with the impact
~
Then
... time took a breath ...
before the avalanche dropped
from the sharp raw edge of the cliff
shearing off century old trees
and loosening rock in its' path
increasing in momentum
toward the unsuspecting sleeping village
that had no warning
of the impending nightmare
before it was buried alive
beneath a million tons
of snow laden
with rock and trees ...

~

For the love of god
... never ...
... ever ...
tick-off
an eagle
~~~



 I'm not ugly!
I'm just visually challenged!
