Inspiration Piece


Stoic Eagle

Jail-like suburbs crowd out your habitat

You don’t care; again you come back

Instead of moving on, you pair up and thrive

Your usual two chicks are three, so more will survive

A trio of eaglets  arise from your nest

You keep your back to the onslaught, let your babies rest

Nature as always means to have her way

This time’s no different, stoic birds of prey

Possessive guardians try and block the view

Human egos on parade,  think they own those two

But the eagles fly higher into the cradling limbs

The only sound is the wind through the trees like hymns
