poetry and prose about place

a pair of eagles

with 6 comments

When we spend time at our lake property, we often see Bald Eagles.  They nest in the large White Pines along the edge of the lake and I sometimes find their feathers near our arbour, suggesting they visit our place when we are not at home.

Today we watched a pair of them circle high in the sky, soaring effortlessly on the updrafts.  They flew in sync with one another, so coordinated in their movements, they could have been dancing.



fragments about wind


the trees move as though branches flow from a bottle


this morning I found

oak leaves on the sidewalk

and a young acorn with the nut missing


a pair of eagles soars

wings lifted on

scant molecules of air

  1. Your cabin sounds idyllic. The best place to read and write.

    I think your photo of the oak leaf and acorns is really perfect.

    scant molecules of air”

  3. Oak leaves and bald eagles, each so wonderful. Your cottage property on the lake must be a great meditative place to be, to get away and to enjoy. I like “on molecules of air”; it captures the lightness and the flow.

    • Hi. The lake property is very calming… the cabin is very small so housework is minimal. A good place to read and write. Jane
