American Spirit

May you soar on eagle wings, high above the madness of the world.
~ Jonathan Lockwood Huie

American Spirit

As eagle swoops at break of day,
     talons cling to wriggling prey.
Having hunted and found his quest
     he soon returns to guard his nest.

Shimmering cliffs that brightly shine
     from rust colored monoliths high,
Create golden treasures
     within the sunset sky.

The scent of autumn's in the air;
     chill of night falls fast.
The eagle soars through clouded sky,
     his kingdom won in triumphs past.

Isaiah 40:31 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

For generations, Native American tribes have associated the Eagle with vision, wisdom, and strength. The predatory spirit animal symbolizes taking responsibility for one’s actions, healing nature and treading lightly as a matter of respect for Mother Earth.
