Poem: Eagle Over Lake

 

Eagle Over Lake

 

shadow above aqua,

slow circle, a slash, a boomerang,

part current, part sculpture,

 

brutal,

 

fang of keen white head,

water the skin, a stray ripple

the jugular.

 

a silver spine wriggles punctured.

hauled, gripped.  

 

no reflection in water.

nothing but a wisp in a photo, 

 

unless

 

the sun comes too close.

brown flames then.

brown flames and ivory embers.
