Poetry Pleases: Hawks Watched Me

A TONY ELLIS poem is a link to life's deepest secrets and significances. The next time you see a hawk, remember that it is doing an appointed task.

* *

Hawks watched me
All the way to Denver
From fence posts and traffic signs
They feigned indifference
But the alertness in their eyes
Betrayed their doing of whatever task
The angels had given them

When I returned home
I saw a brief flash of hawk feather
In the pine tree outside my window
And then she was gone
