_RK_7413 - Version 2 eagle osprey chase 2014

The eagle jumped Ace the osprey as the smaller bird lifted his fish from the river.  For about 90 seconds the eagle pursued Ace, trying to get the osprey to drop his fish.  An eagle will ram an osprey then catch the fish midair if the osprey drops it.  Ace finally flipped up on one wing and dove between two closely growing trees, his fish still in his talons.  The eagle sulked off down river.

what do you do
when friend
hurt battered betrayed bruised
aches bone deep
swims away from your calls
.
what do you do
when friend
mute depressed angry dark
looks away
leaves once known shores and you
_RK_7077 gbh flies away medium 2014 (1)
what do you do
when friend
haunted by other’s hate
fails to see
your heart open waiting
.
what do you do
when friend
bolts in hopeless blind flight
seeking light
comes to where your soul waits
.
you gift the gathered hope
your heart has sheltered
