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
