I am your mother. I’ve made love to the moon.

You are a bird, downy-garbed, and not yet ready to fly.

I’ve drank the Earth’s tears, and each day I go high.

You’re wide-eyed, lovely, and filled with questions ‘why.’

Partake of my wisdom, and together, we'll kiss the sky.

Scott, what a beautiful poem perhaps written from the point of view of an eagle. It reminds me of St. Francis, who I am now studying. When I see eagles and hawks fly, I get this feeling of peace and awe. Also, I have to admit that your poem makes me feel a little envy for this magnificent creature. Thanks for this poem that lifts me.
