Portrait of an Eagle

In search of majestic beauty

A flap of wing against the blue,
a sweep of feathered grace
gliding, sliding, flying,
all motion and sacred spirit,
the eagle soars beyond the realm
of breath and bone,
born of the morning,
flapping into the evening’s soft embers.
Eternal. Eternal.
Bless me with your beauty.
