Where Eagles Dare

Dare I would go where eagles fly,
To that primal shore, in the long gone by.

When reptiles ran, to catch the wind.
Into a strange sky, flapping skin.

Momentarily airborne if not in flight.
Lifting off against gravityís might.

Some would make it; some would not.
Some would soar; some would rot.

Light of bone, and hawk of eye,
These dinosaurs would learn to fly.

Learn to float on thermal draft,
Learn to hunt from precarious shaft.

Of tall trees and through their leaves,
Leaving clouds behind with ease.

Dodging raindrops in full flight.
Challenging the windís greatest might.

Feathers over scaly skin,
Does not hide the talonís sin.

Sinking into unsuspecting prey,
Tearing flesh the dinosaur way.

So if you love our feathered friends,
Think of that far off shore again,

And cringe.

Yes and they dare, in this write they dare.
Makes it so exciting, the thought of it all, I love birds with a passion. The element of danger also, is an adrenaline rush :)

I guess we all would like to be birds sometimes, just flying off and leaving everything behind. Feeling the freedom - that's why I love to fly (plane of course).

I read your website. Just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed it very much. You are a very special person.

Ron I love this, flawless rhyme and flow, as always displayed in your work, love the message, this is one of your best.

The beauty of the eagle is its abilty to use its talon's to shred and expose the truth of any given situation. It is the beast within it that makes this possible. Great write.
