Like a bird
We have a lot depending on
the right direction.

But Unlike it
We have too many doubts
and questions.

Spread your wings
but don’t span out nervously.

*** gave moral compasses
to Guide us personally.

Never be afraid
to go and do your best.

Keeping pulling straws
until you’ve built your nest .

The eagle perched

And grew its wings

His noble stature

Drew attention



There was no false

Modesty in his strength

Its beauty reflected

Mirrored confidence



When you know

Who you are

Remember grace

Nothing less

once was a star sparkling bright
towards the burning sun he ran
but ge got blinded by the light
and with his rise his fall began
.
by falling deep he scorched the sky
and thus brought others down with him
one brother died and one got burned
fading brilliance, gloom and grim
.
far away from sun and sky
the star could see again
he saw a milion distant lights
and he would understand
and he would spread his wings and fly
back to his brothers side
.
from then, the star
can still be seen
upon a summersky at night
his mind shines starry, pale and clear
and when they saw his glooming light
they named him Altair
Inspired by Assassins Creed and the origins of the main characters name.

Shadows of wings
Fall, a fleeting night,
Over the forest;
Winged phantom
Far-off
Dancing circles before the Sun.

Prowling along the mountainside
Ablaze with light and snow,
The Eagle climbs still higher
Through the blinding Vastness,

And I follow.

A speck emerges
From the twisting kaleidoscope of Morning's blank brightness
Spiraling towards earth

A feather

Alights at my feet in answer
To questions festering unasked beneath the surface,
Warm with the omniscience
Of high-above things:

          A sliver
          Borne hither
          On the breath of the Cosmos.  
* = the last line refers to Abbess Hildegard von Bingen's metaphor of herself as "a feather on the breath of ***". It only came to mind as a conceptually appropriate parallel to the feather and to the symbolic significance of the Eagle with regards to this text.

I was once on the ground
Walking
Flying only a few meters
Now I spread out my wings
Soaring
Piercing through the sky

I wish I could fly,
like an eagle in a sky;
I wish I could use a hug,
like a warm coffee in a mug;
I wish I could swim like a fish,
and could also delete one of my bish;
I wish to see everybody clearly,
all those who treated me severely;
I wish to have Newton's mind,
So that I could do something good for mankind;
I wish to have a friend,
Who wont hesitate to share things till the end;
I wish to tell that girl how much I love her,
because I think we are just opposite of concur;
I wish to have a magic door,
So that I could run away whenever I'm abhor ;
I wish to live a peaceful life,
But it is not possible because everyday I have this new strife.

Last night a vision of earth creatures numbering three
They all gathered around and knelt before father and me

A baldeagle with intense eyes that could see far and wide
A brown happy bear gifted with one brilliant mind,
And a grey wolf with power to detect friend or enemy
They came bearing grand gifts; salmon, berries, and honey,
Including their curiosity shining bright as a glowing star
They were very tired as they had traveled very far

Yet, they intrigued us with, "Who created us and why?"
"Why are we given the green earth and lovely sky?"
"Are we to spend our days wandering mile after mile?"
Standing silently father smiled a most pleasant smile,
Then replied with his arms open in a gesture mild,
"This is your home, our village tame and the jungle wild"

Then swiftly visions vanish when sunbeams arrive,
Like vanquishing a misty fog on a mountainside
Let's protect the environment
for our animal friends
and for future generations

white and black eagles,
one chasing the other;
til the end of the world!
