A poem about the enchantment one receives when watching Nature and how it compares to love.

Eagles on the Bay

Watching eagles on the bay
Wishing I was one of them
Having wings of ascendancy
Becoming an icon of majesty
A symbol of the free spirit
And a dancer of the heavens
Everything that I cannot be
Then I turn and look at you
Watching the spectacle in the sky
And realize that no raptor
Could experience the rapture
That I have  because of you
Watching humpbacks on the sound
Wishing they would stay around
Awestruck by their regal presence
As they break the surface with drama
In a display of the free spirit
A dancer upon the wave tops
Being everything I cannot be
And then I see you by my side
Watching the cetacean spectacle
And I know the whales’ enchantment
Can never match the enhancement
That I receive because of you
Storyteller on the Lake

How wonderful! I love the sensitivity and realizations that underpin this poem. I like the juxtaposed "feel" of looking up, then realizing all you have by looking right in front of you. What a joyful place to be.

You capture nature at it's most finest moments.

Much peace, love and light,
