Earthbound: as you descend the skies
Saying goodbye to the heights
The vast blue
Would be the first to vanish
Where the dreams burgeon and blooms
Into a harvest.
Across the valleys and over the bridges
At a height where birds cannot reach
To your home; Oblivious of impending dangers
Across the lofty, distant rugged mountain slopes.
Contributing to the ruins of the mountain cities.
As the drums and trumpets fade away
The blue sky; an unfeeling witness
Neither the ear-splitting thunders
Nor the fury of the mountain-gods
Could stop you from riding the breeze
Carrying fish and meat; to slake the hunger of eyass.*
* eyass-A baby falcon is called an eyass.
**This poem is dedicated to The Peregrine Falcon which is the fastest animal on Earth; it is capable of achieving speeds of approximately 200 miles an hour in a vertical dive.
