The Eagle

I took you
By surprise,
Big wedge tail,
Sitting on a log,
On the side
Of a lonely hill.

I took you
By surprise,
And just for a fleeting moment,
You and I were equals,
And so close together.

Just for a fleeting moment,
I shared
Your presence,
Big and majestic bird,

Don’t go,
I whispered,

But you took flight,
And quickly found
Wind and currents,
To take you
Far aloft,
To wing and soar,
On updrafts and thermals,
To watch little me,
Far, so far

I took you by surprise,
And just for
A fleeting moment,
I thought,

That you and I
Were equals.
