The eagle climbs in spirals above the valley

ascending its thermal staircase

with ease,

a flash in the feathering sunlight


while the mouse moves fluently 

through bent meadow grasses


like you, within a maze 

of its own making


but free 

of everything except 

this moment 


and so,

it is safe


even when seen 

by the eagle

as what sustains its own 



and perhaps even still in the swift 


as it leaves the ground 


in a flash of feathers and light



what is safe

as the eagle.
