On The Wings Of An Eagle

On The Wings Of An Eagle

Standing ready, she closes her eyes listening for the sound

She raises arms to the heavens as she edges forward til her toes curl round

The moon  beats down upon  her face and the glow warms her from within

She lets her eyes follow the mountains as they curve around the bend


She is barefoot in splendid wonder, her cotton gown clinging to her knees

The whiteness of the cotton gown slowly rippling like fog amongst the trees

Her hair flows like dark rivers over her shoulders in layers of earthy brown

There is no fear within her as she again raises her face listening for the sound


The moon,a glowing beacon, had risen from the treeline like a goddess in the sky

She had heard her softly say “come darling, follow me, it is once again time to fly

She found herself walking on legs long since withered and broken as she rose to obey

she felt no pain or weakness as the moons glow wound round her legs in soothing play


She grew excited with anticipation for she had heard the call many times before

Silently moving through the house until she finally reached the exit door

Her breathing was shallow and a smile upon her lips as she quietly eased outside

She stood looking to the moon nodding she was coming, as the door left open wide


Now, she stood with toes curled upon the ledge and her arms raised ready to fly

Not one drop of fear around, she waited only for that sound of the familiar cry

She hears them in the distance, the echo of eagle’s cries float into her ears

She raises up on tiptoes, with arms open wide and steps off the cliff with no fear


Falling downward she smiles for she knows the softness of the landing will be sweet

When her body sinks into the familiar softness and she feels the heart begin to beat

She nuzzles her face in closer and lays there in silent wonder cheek to cheek

The power of the beating wings fill her heart leaving her breathless and weak


Looking down she sees the meadow illuminated with the glow of the moon

The animals are scurrying around as if making a magical nature tune

She watches with delight perched high up in the sky as the world flies by

And in breathless wonder, her heart skips a beat as a tear falls from her eye


She closes her eyes for a moment, sighs in deep content with a smile upon her lips

Feeling the power of this body as they make turns and dips and flips

she realizes the gift she is given when she stands on the edge waiting for the sound

As she stands looking with arms raised to the sky, just waiting to be found


He gently sets her back upon the earth as his wing touches her face tenderly

And she sees the gentleness in his eyes that is only there for her heart to see

She feels him say as he looks at her that he will return again, to wait for the moon

The moon will let her know the time and she will return to the cliff very soon


Few can see with the eye of the eagle or soar across mountain tops touched by snow

She used to ask him why she was picked but he told her it was not for her to know

All she needed to know was to come when the moon told her it that it was time to fly

She could hear the echo of hooves, feel the warriors near as he lifted her to the sky


And as she lay on the softness of feathers and caressed his beautiful head in love

Some could only feel his beauty through the thickness of a leather glove

She knew it was a gift she was given to ride in splendid wonder in the sky so high

And feel the presence of heaven so close that the beauty made her heart cry
