Image result for wedge tailed eagle high in dead gum

Raptor perched

high in dead gum





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
