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 as she rose to obey
she felt no pain 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, 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 knowing the softness of the landing will be sweet
When her body sinks into the familiar softness, 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 fills 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 when the moon told her 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
