Eagle Flight

An eagle flies up through the sky

Eggs strewing down like pure war bombs


One plops to a viper – a hearty meal

For a struggling serpent


One falls on Chris’ head – a ruined

Hair and sticky shards throughout the day


One lands in front of a lonely girl -a new-

Found friend for abandoned dolls


One sinks in the Pacific – a legend for

The superstitious fishmonger


But one egg remains aloft – carried by the

Wind to find its mother.
