eagle prayer – May 6


An Eagle. Tall, straight, noble

a leader amongst men and boys

focused, the hawk-like profile turned

slightly upward and left, eyeing the sky.


An Eagle. Short and stouter, modest

of demeanor. Boy-man, man-boy

rising to some direction he knows not

yet shyly smiling and eyeing the sky.


May his path be straight, his eyes clear,

the steps of his character firm. May he

rise to find his true place in a world of

pseudo raptors, where a gentle heart

is not always honored.


May he help us all

to eye the sky.
