The Eagle Has Landed – A Haibun

The Eagle Has Landed

I was walking my dogs early one morning last fall and saw a bird flying above.  I knew immediately by the immense span of black/brown wings and striking white head that it was a bald eagle.

To my surprise he landed on a tree just in front of us on one of the lower branches.  We stopped in our tracks and the dogs quietly sat down and none of us moved a muscle. 

The majestic eagle stayed in place for at least two minutes while I watched in awe.  I was so excited I wanted to get a photo and of course all I had was an iPhone with two large Labs on leashes, but I managed to get a least one picture, even though it’s a little grainy. (see below).  These moments are like little gifts from Nature.

The Bald Eagle stayed
only for a few minutes but
graced with his presence

tonight and has prompted us to write a Haibun referencing
the Eagle.
