I write what I feel…

A Bird’s Eye View


Eagle Pictures, Images and Photos

A Bird’s Eye View

I saw an eagle
soaring on the currents of warm air
high above the arid plains
of parched earth
where the hot wind blows
and the tumbleweeds roll,
keen eyes sharply focused
searching for the smallest movement
the slightest sign or inkling
of a potential meal for the open beaks
waiting in the eyrie atop a krantz
in the distant blue mountains.

krantz, n. (S.-Afr.) precipitous or overhanging wall of rocks

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx
