Eagle Down

 

I thought I might find a feather under the tree where the eagles sit

watching me warily, though with growing indifference.

Anticipating the possibility of something grand and showy

the down was at first disappointing.

But then it was so light in my hand, almost air.

 

A smile spread. My tread was noticeably softer upon leaving.

  2. Hi Chris — I feel a “lightness” just reading this — even the smallest touch of nature lifts us to another dimension — often beyonbd words.
    Thanks!
