Live to Fly     April 22, 2016    

Quizzical, eaglet of Jordan Lake Eagle Family 2016

 

live to fly dear eaglet

live to rise to dominate the sky

live, fly and let me cry

watching you dear friend

soar free

so boldly consuming hard blue sky

    life lived above lake, fire and hate

 

fledge from nest and tall pine

fledge from earth's hold defying death's call 

fledge, climb and do not fall

aching I hold breath 

heart stilled

my being answering eaglet call

    life lived above lake, fire and hate

 

rise with wings gather'ing wind

rise with eyes keen revealing your soul

rise, life your only goal

sighing still earth-bound 

I rise 

I'm lifted transported through shared soul

    life lived above lake, fire and hate
