Where only eagles should dare

Where only eagles should dare …

Did they notice but endure the rancid  taste of humanity
and all it’s wrongs
even long after we celebrated in written words
in the voices and songs

Nowadays I stand and watch as they come back up the valleys
and I listen at the echoes of once defeated
do they speak a new language these days ?
reminding me it was I  was too conceited

I promise you my friends we mean no new harms
can we coexist in the here and now…… can we not ?
this day we’ll  walk again to the river  and watch
in the listening and loving of all that we’ve got

The eagle has returned to our shores and asks but one thing
to raise her young along the river
I speak  out to her yes yes we can for we must
watch now as we deliver

Note. we  have the eagles once again along the rocky shores  in the northeast
this time forever more ?

Sometime in my life, I started to write about my life journey, in poetry, in story perhaps to sort them out and enter them into a place of safekeeping. The soul of the writer is perhaps best described in their words, emotions and thoughts. If these poems or stories touch something inside you then maybe I have succeeded in sharing. I will not write about my self in profile, because self isn't so important in writing. Only the journey in words and the sharing are important. Why would weever say " Now about me !"........I'd rather write about life, nature, serenity ........

    Thank you, Ed, for writing this poem. It touches my heart, for I watch the eagles soar over the little mountain behind my home – it gives me a peaceful feeling to see them so powerful and free. Lovely poem dear friend.

    Nicely penned Ed, and good news for a species to return to natural order, as so many are falling. Cheers!
