An eagles

keen-gleam

eye

can peirce

straight to

your soul

like a

sword

and stay there

in your mind's eye

Forever.

But not often

does that fierce

feathered gaze

soften and that hard, pointed beak

smile,

seeming to speak

directly to

your being

with a simple

cry.

Not often can

an eagle

have the innocence

and open heart

of a

child.

But nothing

is impossible

in a world

full

of

miracles.
