    Eaglet’s Prayer

    My fledgling wings

    and eager heart

    throb

    in my struggles

    to rise

    over ground

    and tree

    and cloud

    I plead

    for surging cloud breaks

    to spread my wings

    and pulse my heart

    with freshness

    to soar

    over ground

    and tree

    and cloud

    and once risen

    to see the wholeness

    of creation

    invisible
