The Fish Eagle
By Suzette Richards


master of the river calling to his mate
I lift my face to the early morning sun
just in time to see him swoop
extending talons
scooping fish
bearing it aloft
he settles
on an overhanging branch
and savours his catch of the morning – ripping
then we are all one – the fish eagles and I

Rester silencieux et ébloui devant ce roi du ciel plongeant... and [i]then we are all one – the fish eagles and us[/i].
Et reprendre sa respiration en contemplant les étoiles dorées tombées sur l'eau

I like the first and last one- everyone looks so chill, just taking it in, enjoying everything. I wish more of my days were filled with that!
