H is for Hawk

For the month of April I will be taking part in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I will be using two tools besides my trusty computer - my imagination and my dictionary -The American Heritage Dictionary, Second College Edition.. I will turn to the letter of the day, flip the pages and let my fickle finger of fate find the word. Then I'll write - might be a story, might be a rant, might be a poem. Who knows! Do let me know what you think. To go to the list of other participants go here *** I'm number 1414 - that's a heck of a lot of blogs and there are many more signed up below me. If you make a comment I will do my darnedest to check out your blog and comment. Spread the love around!

Hawk - n. 2. a. Any of various birds of prey of the order Falconiformes, and esp. of the genera Accipiter and Buteo, characteristically having a short, hooked bill and strong claws adapted for seizing.


You come to me in my dreams
and on my vision quests.
You circle low, your eyes sharpening,
past the woods and onto the grasslands.
Your call  - kee-ah  ... kee-ah
reminds me to wake, to notice
this wondrous earth.
Once I awaken your hunt is over.

My power animal is a red-shouldered hawk - a beauteous thing that appears in my dreams and in my vision quests. It is linked somehow with my mother - who had soft shoulders covered in freckles - perhaps that is it. That my finger should fall on Hawk for today's challenge means it is time for me to pay attention to hawk-energy.

Jan - What a strong poem! And it sounds to me like a perfectly clear message when your finger happens to fall on Hawk for today...

I love hawks too, and wasn't it a coincidence that your finger fell on hawk today.
