In the Feathers of their Wings

hawk from uhd wallpapers

In our ancient past, and in the not too distant future,

hawks will gently rest on our shoulders,

with their wings intricate, layer upon layer

of feathers to not only hold the wind

but to keep our prayers, tucked away until

the appointed time, and they lift off with a scream,

in the midst of the battle, as heaven rages,

against the never ending night.

In our ancient past, and in the not too distant future.

  1. that is so lovely Nico! and the photo is quite nice too with the clouds sweeping the sky just as the hawk’s wings do as well! “the Appointed Time” is a phrase I always love 🙂 cheers, peace, good tidings
