taken with my cell, in my neighborhood 🙂

It isn’t a great picture but let me tell you they are so beautiful.  There are two eagles that live in this nest…and i think there may be a little one 🙂 We see the adults flying around often and they are massive!  I swear their wingspan must be as wide as my outstretched arms. The nest is huge as well… I’m thinking if someone were brave/stupid enough to climb the tree and face their wrath they could probably curl up and take a nap in it!

Impressive wingspan

Soaring, swooping, gliding

Golden master of flight

So I wrote this line years ago…but thought it needed to be part of something larger.  I’ve worked with it a few times.  Created a story but it just didn’t flow, it felt forced.  So to embrace the original/organic thought it must stand alone.

All was silent

but for

the eagle’s roar

and the flapping

of lion’s wings.
