As I drove home this evening
I continue to scan the horizon
Whilst listening to another oldie on the radio
When into my eye
Came the sight of a Hawk
Proud and boasting and standing sentry on the road sign
His white chest flecked with spots of black diamonds
Basking in the end of day light of the sun
Fiercely guarding his post
Incredible in his grandeur
A gift to be sure
And my only reaction
Was to look into the sun lit sky
And whisper
"Thank you"
