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.
