Feathered Presence

Fierce and majestic,
the bald eagles scour
the river, while I,
in awe stand witness.

Last year,
it was a mated pair
whose white crowns
commanded audience

Now, the offspring,
perches princely
claims this tract
and my allegiance

Feathered grandeur
and piercing eyes
a royal presence
somehow coherent.

(Inspired by the promptings of Ragtag Community: prince, and Fandango’s: coherent.  Also linking up with Granny Shot It’s: BOTD.  The image is from personal collection and available through Society6.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Stunning photo, VJ! He could claim my allegiance too, charming pose. We had binocular fun watching 4 bald eagles (2 young) in Colorado on one of our extended day drives – they did not bless us with proximity for photos!

      1. I tried to find all the places where my responses on your blog were MIA…one time it said, “duplicate comment”, so I guess they’re all there somewhere. I’m gonna call it Done–and in future, I’ll check to see if my comments “attach”…might have to go to your blog to leave comments, rather than doing them from Reader here. Good grief, Charlie Brown!
