in my last life

Posted to Action Poetry

as an eagle
in my last life
i watched the details
of probe and swoop

i called to you
as miles melted into clouds
i turned to the flutter of wings

my heart knew one intent
as a unit of strength
a protector of the weak

it was done, i did all
as requested, as fulfilled
impeccable action

my last life was dedicated
and sanctified, as native
lore upheld
as blessed a life as eagles share
as above, so below
i fell into infinity
and reappeared as this

my last life
swirls within
as i direct my gaze to you
