The Daily Spur Presents…The View From An Eagle’s Eye

Eagle flew high
Eagle flew low
On currents warm
On currents cold.

Eagle flew above the forest.
Eagle flew below the trees’ line.
Past pines and oaks
Past new and old.

Eagle flew to her favorite fishing spot.
Eagle flew to where the fish moved slow.

Eagle found strange sights in the water.
Eagle found things that did not belong.
Something stiff and unbending.
Something soft and squished down.

Eagle landed on the tallest pine tree.
Eagle surveyed the strange things below.

Were they predators like her?
Were they prey like fish?

Eagle rose from her perch.
Eagle swooped down in attack.
They were strange sights in the water.
They did not belong.

Eagle swooped at the large one that looked like a bug.
Eagle extended her talons
To grab, to slash
To tear.

A head rose from behind the large one that looked like a bug.
Eagle screamed.
The head screamed.
The head disappeared with a loud splash.

Yet the large one that looked like a bug did not fall.
It stayed still and standing even without its head.

Something splashed in the water in a hurry
To get over to the soft, squashed one.

Eagle screamed.
Eagle flew in to attack.

The unknown swam faster to the soft, squashed one.
It quickly climbed aboard.
The soft, squashed one ran away as fast as it could
It left Eagle far behind.

Eagle soared up to the sky
Eagle screamed its triumph.
She then dove down
To where the fish moved slow.

    1. Thank you so much!

      When I first saw the prompt picture, I automatically thought “Eagle flew high. Eagle flew low.” and I just had to write it down to see what would happen. 😀

      And, for the record, you definitely don’t want to mess around in Eagle’s favorite fishing spot. 😆
