Eagle On Wings - Poem by Valsa George

Have you watched an eagle in flight?
On wings flayed, it looks a massive kite
It shoots into the heights with unlabored ease
Enjoying the kiss of passing breeze

Quickly disappearing into the seamless sky
It becomes invisible to every gazing eye
Is there any other bird so awesomely regal
As this avian king in grandeur proverbial?

Over crags and peaks it flies aloft
Displaying many an aerial feat
Soaring, circling, diving and dipping
It springs and sways on wings flapping

With unassailable might, it braves the wind
Pushing aside every obstacle behind
Gliding solitary over the sailing cloud
To which territory it sneaks away from the crowd?

Who can ignore this wonderful sight?
When an eagle elegantly takes off in flight
No other bird can soar to such height
And none can beat it in its might

With an unmatched range of wider vision
How it spots its prey with precision
So intent and focused on its decision
Nothing on Earth can give it any diversion

With sharp talons and a curved beak
And strength enough to subdue the meek
It swoops down over the ones that cower
And preys upon what it wants to devour

Oh bird of grace! You are never fettered
The entire sky you have verily conquered
You enjoy the upward thrust of a storm
And across its current coolly swim

Let us soar like an eagle on wings
And shoot into the sky in spiral rings
Propelling forward to still greater heights
As this dweller of the sky in never failing spirits!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is my 300th poem. On Poem Hunter where there are many poets with thousands of poems to their credit, this is no achievement. Yet for me, this is a milestone and I am thankful to all my good friends who relentlessly support and back me through their patient reading and kind comments
This poem Eagle On Wings is deliberately chosen for the occasion!
Eagle is a symbol of strength and freedom and is the national bird of the United States. We humans have a lot to emulate from this bird, its ability to shoot into great altitudes, its tenacity, its sharp vision, its focus of purpose, its indefatigable vitality, its care and concern in bringing up the young ones, its tactics in teaching the young ones to fly….. even, its caution in choosing its mate etc… etc.

I humbly invite all of you to read this poem and give your comments!

    Mam,
    Love your poems. For me eagle was always a bird which preys, its strength to be feared. The image of Prometheus , daily tortured by the eagle comes to my mind. I have also published a poem here, when pain gnaws.. with this idea. Your lines have a rhyme, which is awesome. Thanks for sharing the poems. (Report) Reply

    What a great poem I love it! Congratulations for the 300th and good luck to many, many more! Yes, yes! I watch the eagles sometimes, never miss the oportunity of folowing them and maybe trying to feel as one with the flying eagle. A greatest pleasure to seem them moving with such an ease with grace, love how at slow speed would fly as natural as we take a breath, playing in a thermal, would spin and take height, oh, I love so much to watch that. Thank you dear loving friend for writing and sharing such a wonderful poem, Congratulations again! (Report) Reply

    So true a poem of beauty as it is...i live on a lake size canal and often see the ospreys skimming the water and plucking s fish from the water and then off to their nest in view and consume and share the catch with its young,
    magic to see and a magic poem Valsa...regards (Report) Reply
