On The Last Day Of The Year

looking into
the setting sun
farewell to the past

Summit of the Small and Large

oriole and eagle
the meeting
of beauty and power

Beneath the Eagle’s Wings

quiet spoke
look up, look up
and I was carried into flight


sacred sound
the cry of life
effort and sacrifice

Vision Guide

to be seen
over the eagle’s shoulder
invitation to spiritual quest

Wild Ways

intrepid tree
grows in rock
eagle’s fishing spot

Eagle’s Perch

an open marsh
the solitary dead pine
this is where the eagle prays


Awaken when the woodpecker knocks.
Birdsong accompanies the noontime meal.
Eagle’s cries announce the surrender of day to dusk.
