A Hawk Swoops By

ODE to a HAWK.. driving home today.. I saw a hawk it swooped down ahead of me on the road.. and disappeared, and as I passed, where I saw it swoop, I wondered where it went and woooosh up from the right it flew right in front of my car! So close it flew that if I did not slow down, I would have hit him or her. The beautiful hawk flew in front of my car for a few timeless seconds… I came home and wrote the Hawk a poem and drew a quick sketch.. ODE to a HAWK

Ode to a Hawk:

Whenever I think of Thee
You arise

Whenever I think of Thee
You appear

Whenever I think of Thee
You fly by

Whenever I think of Thee
You are sitting perched close by

Whenever I think of Thee
I ponder what is it? that is soon to come clear?

Whenever I think of Thee
It is clear
It is you
Who let me know
To look up!
For lol You Are Here!

Whenever I think of Thee
It is clear
That it is your hawk silent whispers
Telling me
That you are near

Whenever I think of Thee
It is because you are the one
Already thinking of me
Wanting me to know you are near
and that I am very dear
Just as you too are very dear

Whenever I think of Thee
You Appear
