‘View of the eagle’

Soaring upon thermal currents
with a breathtaking view of all.
A majestic, taloned bird of prey
screeches out its warning call.

With mighty six foot wingspan
and razor sharp sense of sight;
the eagle glides over the valley.
Her feathers gilded by sunlight.

Movement is detected far below
but unsuspected on the ground.
Death soars down from above,
snatched away without a sound.

The prey struggles in its clutch;
it wriggles but can't break free.
The hatchlings are eager to feed.
Mama brings another meal to be.
