Red Tail Hawk Sighting

Yesterday, while walking Manly and Biela in Corona Heights Park, we were graced with a red-tail hawk soaring in the wind. It was dusk and the fog was descending and covering the base of Twin Peaks. The fog hadn't reached the park yet, and she was flying in the air right underneath the space between the fog and a patch of late afternoon sun. She was just breath-taking, gliding so effortlessly, low to the ground and then up and away where our eyes couldn't follow her.

It reminded me of the last time I saw a red-tail hawk in the red flowering gum tree in front of our house, just a year ago. She inspired me to write the following:

What is it that you want
to do in your Life?
To be among pigeons
or soar like a hawk?
