|Powerful and creative write Eileen, in my line of work I run across more of these human predators everyday, very sad indeed!
love and peace...

|Beautiful picture. I see hawks all day long in the mountain wash behind my home. Good analogy too. Predators are where you least expect to find them and where one SHOULD feel safe and protected, in one's home and their faith. Sad world.

|Love that pic Eileen, a sad refelction of the society we live in today...and they don't always get away with it. There are bigger predators out there.

|"until they spot what they want, they make their dive
causing a furor as all the lesser birds try to scare the hawk off by diving into it only rarely do the birds scare it away."

|Yes, well, the animal world is on a balance that I doubt most humans will ever understand, though it seems like you do. I LLLLLLLOVED the photo, I love watching hawks here, too, flying and swooping.|

Excellent poem that expresses why feathered and furred creatures are oftentimes better than humans. Sad to say this is true...well done.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

In nature, pecking orders are established intra-species, often in not so gentle ways. When it comes to inter-species competition cruelty has little recognition nor bounds, other than a rare outcropping of empathy. Civilization is the nurturing of empathy.

|Great poem and pic that exposes the underbelly of life on this earth.|
|Reviewed by Peter Paton
|Very fine metaphorical write that exposes the hypocrisy and cynicism
of those who prey on other's feelings and vulnerabilities !
I believe in the Cosmic Wheel and Karma Eileen, and firmly believe what goes round, must come back again, just like a comet in its elliptical circumnavigation of the Universe 1
Those who practise those misdemeanours will receive their full punishment in the fullness of time !
Beautiful picture of a beautiful red tailed hawk !
I have seen many of those magnificent creatures in California !
