Words an eagle overheard

On a snowy day a bald eagle alights on the top of a wooden post holding part of a fish. Its wings are fully extended.

Great Spirit; wingspan of the Earth;

Balancing wind from every direction,

Gifting down into the palm of our becoming,

Returning that of our souls we knew not were missing,

Find our gratitude in the silence of water awakening stones.

A small white feather floats above round multicoloured stones below still water
