    I've seen other birds of prey do this, but I didn't know bald eagles did it as well! Very nice poem illustrating this lovely dance... MC

    Mating dance that causes the waves to stop, rather than crash, is quite a powerfully breathless moment. I like this quite a lot.

    Jones Avatar Donna Jones Date: 5/17/2013 6:10:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Glad you enjoyed the eagle dance Drake....thanks..I really appreciate your visits.

    About your comment on Haiku 28. Yes, you're typically not expected to title them, personally I think it kinda gets rid of the "surprise" in the haiku itself, because a lot is revealed in the title already. If you really want to title them, I believe titling them by the first line is a good way to do it. That way you're not spoiling anything. If you're writing haiku that DOESN'T follow 5-7-5 I wouldn't trash it... in my opinion haiku should be about images and content (not syllables).

    I've seen this too, on a cold day over Oklahoma's Quartz Mountain. I watched this beautiful dance for a very long time, and tired well before the eagles did. Good work... Jack

    Jones Avatar Donna Jones Date: 5/15/2013 9:19:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Aren't they glorious to watch soaring around so effortlessly? Thanks for reading Jack.
  1. Date: 5/14/2013 2:33:00 AM

    I've never heard of this mating ritual... thanks for the education, a bonus for the haiku... haha. I liked this one. Line three was interesting because I was looking at it through the eagles point of view. I'm not sure if that was your intention, but that's the way I looked at it.

    Jones Avatar Donna Jones Date: 5/14/2013 6:37:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Exactly!!!! Eagle mirror.....thanks Timothy.....it is a sensual contest....
  1. Date: 5/13/2013 6:48:00 PM

    Great read... I've seen movies of this phenomena. I also here they have a method of flight training... They are said to take the eaglets aloft hundreds of feet and drop them. Thank God mama eagle knows when the young are ready.... Love ya lots.... Jake

    I too have seen the dance on TV...we have many bald eagles on the river along our town in winter here...they are so beautiful....I saw one catch a fish once...awesome in person...thanks for stopping...

    I have heard of the Eagle's mating flight but I have never seen an eagle even though there is suppose to be a Southern Eagle..Thanks for the visit to my work..I enjoy the Dove's cooing in the morning very early and I see them at the area where the feeders are..Sara
