The Hawk

The hawk circled, watching below
at all the activity happening
He focused on each person, as he would prey
But, instead he was just observing, listening, learning
He went to the wise owl and reported his observations and instincts
As he flew across the landscape, he could see things far and close 
He could see the present and the past
A span of time that connected things like a familiar path
A path flown many times!
The wise owl said, you are right, your vision is clear
You will reach a destination where everything makes sense
Stop circling; Fly with freedom and you will discover your new path
The others below will never anticipate this!
For they were not here for so many years
They do not know who you have become
They will never reach you no matter what they do
For they lack the critical knowledge and they are the ones who are stuck!

Dear Heidi, your last line says it all. ' For they lack the critical knowledge and they are the ones who are stuck. ' Sad that many in the world can relate to this. Animals are very smart, indeed. Your thoughts are powerful. Congratulations my sweet friend, on Poem of the Day. My best to you. :) Hugs, Brandy

What a way to see the flight of a hawk, Heidi. I love to watch them just sit and stare. Their stare so focuses, and I wonder on what. on a prey or just the passer Byers not afraid of anything. Congratulations on POTD, I enjoyed reading
