Bird Against The Sky - Poem by Marilyn Lott

He stood against the sky
Looming on the rocks above me
He looked almost like a statue
Standing so still and majestically

It was early morning sunrise
A start of an amazing day
The feelings I felt inside
Are difficult to say

For on this early morning
I had my fishing rod in hand
I felt so close to nature
The lake... the sky... the land

It seemed as though time
Had stopped right in its tracks
And I had to capture the moment
‘Cause there was no turning back

Nor did I want seek yesterday
And I will tell you why
I want to remember this morning
And the bird against the sky!
