Poem: Eagle Over Lake


Eagle Over Lake


shadow above aqua,

slow circle, a slash, a boomerang,

part current, part sculpture,




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, 




the sun comes too close.

brown flames then.

brown flames and ivory embers.
