The eagle of my soul

I woke up this morning to your presence around me
The grace of your snow-white neck, strong and proud
The cradle of your quiet intensity beside my sleep, at guard
Lulled my senses deep, back from soaring the icy mountains 

Your eyes, their tawny lucid watch over me
Vigilant in the care you shower me on this earth time
Your breath, ours, the ethereal threads of mysteries 
I long for us, our time back together each time, coursing senses

Wings of longing are known to break the hardest
Don’t let these layered realities dull my truth away
Fly with me, wing to wing, my nights away from illusions
You have me mesmerized in your talons of sweet nirvana

I trace the curve of your powerful beak, I feed on us
Delirious from our thirsty beginnings and your sage wisdom
Circling eternities, your tenderness guide me on
I live, I love, in the heady existence of our union…

    Metaphorically speaking, this is excellent, Bindu! You and the eagle seem to merge into one. I am glad I came back to your past poems...this is one that I would not have ever wanted to miss!! A 7 rating and a fave! /x/ paul

    An eagle guides by patient passion, glides into love swift and instinctive Bindu. "Quiet intensity...Tawny lucid", wow! A most beautiful request from a gaurdian love, "Dont let these layered realities dull my truth away..." Sometimes Truth does seem vulnrrable in our fragile hearts. Such erotic wisdom, a real Masterpiece Bindu...your work is a form of poetic Nirvana for me. J.A.B.

    'The eagle of my soul' - that captured my interest from the get go. I love how you've incorporated the bird's attributes and what it entails to theme. Very well written Bindu!
