Contrasting Ways

the eagles fight in bright blue sky
tail feathers fly
one eagle falls
the other calls

a warrior not the peaceful dove 
symbol of love 
he would rather
show white feather

the eagles bask in ardent praise
for fighting ways
this should not be
the skies are free

    As always Joyce it's a pleasure to read your poems as you usually impart some gently conveyed wisdom.

    This is LOVELY Joyce! I love the image of the eagle flying in the sky. And the warrior set in his ways really does bring the feeling of contrast. Nice!
