Well the fog has lifted and the day is taking on a special glow!
Each day I look out the window, checking to see what’s new or just to admire the vista from our hill-top house.
Sadly, I do not always see what I expect to see and I am reminded that, beautiful as Nature is, there is always an element of conflict , some winners, some losers.
Inspired by a conflict themed poetry prompt (30 words or less) at
I wrote this poem about a real-life incident.
View From the East Window
Red-tailed hawk so big
Perched atop brown chain-link fence
Head dipping down often
Takes flight with wings spread wide
No chipmunk scampering on the deck today.
