Lifecycle

Two beautiful bald eagles

Majestic and strong

Built a nest

High in a redwood tree

Raised a hatchling there

Taught it to spread its wings

 

Then they all disappeared

 

A year passed

 

They were all off somewhere else doing eagle things

 

Yesterday, two beautiful bald eagles

Returned

Alone

Majestic and strong

Same nest

Same tree

Preparing to hatch an addition

to their family

 

They’ll teach him to fly

 

And show him the world

 

A year will pass…
