walking in a north woods I watch
an eagle, nesting high in tall
trees, glides in over the lake
returning to feed its young.

in silence I stand.  my sight fixed
on such a natural spectacle I can
but stare & not forget.  perhaps,
sitting astride their ponies,
generations before me,

cresting a hill during a morning's hunt,
some forefathers
chanced upon such a scene, as I have,
& in doing so were, like I am,
momentarily overcome & sat as transfixed

as I am following the bird's flight
& movement while noticing feather
& form, then sigh as they draw
another breath.  I, too, do now.


Running Cub, Everglades
