THE HAWK

Updated on April 24, 2012

I saw the hawk soar~

Although I did not know~

What it was looking for?

I saw it fly left~

Than right~

Next it was out of sight!

The sky is a grayish overcast~

Shedding miniature snowflakes~

Aching the air feels raw and crass.

My eyes lumber down~

The newly budded tree line~

To the opened field where~

The hawk did flap wings to climb.

As my eyes descend~

To the sloped yard~

Than to its flatness below~

Green grass catches my gaze~

As the wind chilled blows.

My eyes drop in~

To patches of flowers~

Scattered abreast~

Still a sign that spring is~

Doing her best.

My body huddles a bit~

Hunched are my shoulders~

As if to protect me from the cold~

Yet bitterness does not~

Discriminate its borders.

Tiz time to return in~

I stretch my sleeves as I walk~

To cover my fingers~

Against the blustery breeze~

As my mouth mumbles~

Some chilling thoughts.

I walk pebbles underfoot~

Past the bird bath~

Vacant of feathered friends~

Beyond the cement bench~

With surrounding statues of angels unclad~

As well the dirty white wooden fence.

I lift my foot to a natural stone step~

Than ultimately the next~

As the wooded porch floor~

Stained a brownish red~

Does stabilize my footing at best.

I soon open wide the door~

Met by warmth~

How my body implores~

The soothing solace~

Of the comforting wood fed stove.

As I am unthawed~

I remember once more~

The hawk I saw out doors~

As poetic words from~

My prior thoughts doth pour.

I saw the hawk soar~

Although I did not know~

What it was looking for?

I saw it fly left~

Than right~

Next it was out of sight!
