An Eagle and I

I'm not much of a poet - I've only written two or three in my life. But once in a while I get inspired to try. This was written after I spent an afternoon flying alone with an eagle in the mountains of Colorado.


Alone in the sky,
I fly. 
The world with its troubles
And sorrows I leave.
I do not grieve.
For I am one
With clouds and sun. 
The whisper of wind
So sweet in my ears;
And words not spoken, 
Promises broken, 
Are left behind;
Leaving my mind
To free thoughts once more
As I alone soar
Where I belong,
In the sky.
An Eagle and I.

Golden, Colorado - 1977
