His Majesty

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub - Haibun Monday "Eagle"
(posted by Frank Tassone)

Write a haibun that references the Eagle.

Over there!  As a king on his throne, a bald eagle
perches.  A park of varied paths with neighboring
creek.  We walk the dogs, admire teal-headed ducks
swimming past lily pads, and kids trying their luck
with fishing poles.

Suddenly everyone looks up yelling, and pointing
to the top of a gleaming steel pole.  As if a UFO is
hovering, we all crane our necks at once
to watch this majestic bird.

         sunshine ripples creek
         in Summer.  Ducks swim and squawk
         water shades wings


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
