PRAIRIE PERIL

Hawk - Copy

The hawk and traveler stood still.

I suppose the time had come.

She slowly vanishes, 

until I see no more of her.

 

I felt like a stranger

in a foreign land.

So much anguish here.

Brilliant red shadows

at death’s nearness.

 

Your wrinkled finger

pushed my tears away.

How much despair you hold

in a single human heart.

About redcontroversy

I know I'm a stargazing,skywatching,storm loving, sungazing addict. Environmentalist, political blogger, professional photographer, writer, artist...my favourite quote is: "If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive". ~ Eleonora Duse ~ ...my soul is definitely alive.
