Eagle flying

Eagle flying over a lake in western Colorado

Thin winter
air under
my wings,
I adjust my
tail to circle
the frozen
pond, eyeing
the snowy
shore, is
that an unwary
rabbit? The
hunger, ever
the hunger,

This was a point of view poem from the November Poem a Day Challenge,

Sold a copy of this card today. The river won’t look like this for a couple of months. It’s that in-between time now. It’s no longer fall, but it isn’t really winter yet.

Yesterday, we walked along the Redlands Canal down to Connected Lakes State Park. Golden leaves, formerly in the trees, were on the walkway. There wasn’t much water in the canal either, but there were ducks. We even saw a wood duck. They are not very common around here. The wood duck picture above was taken by somebody else and shared through Wikipedia. It was really cloudy and getting dark, so I didn’t have my camera. We didn’t see the female, just the male.
