Still

Image result for wedge tailed eagle high in dead gum

Raptor perched

high in dead gum

 

Still

 

Watchful

Patient in its elongated pause

Eyes scan

In its own lack of movement

it enhances its perception

of infinitesimal vibration below

 

Stone still

sculptured silence

 

Its vision

thousands years of watching,

ingrained skill

Branch sways

Eyes riveted

 

Wind ruffles its feathers

lifts and glides down

sweeps across the earth

 

Lambs bleat,

wind in wires

Lesser birds trill

 

Regal raptor reigns
