Our Place Within the Sky

Red-tailed from Audubon

In the splendor of the Earth, and all that was made, within brown and white tones

of hawk feathers, we find ourselves in awe really

of creation, both its beauty and strength, and we wonder

of the power of wings, the sharpness of the eyes

the shape of talons, curious

of where we belong,

and our place within the sky.

    1. I do too! Thank you Anna! One time I had a hawk at eye level, fly right by my head! He was looking at me and so close I heard his wings flapping. It was something! Peace and have a great week!
