Fearsome and beautiful you sit on my rail
Letting me know you are the king
Birds disappeared on arrival
No lunch from my feeder today
As you contemplate your next move
Your eyes hold a Covid loneliness
One of isolation and sadness
Exquisite creature, do you feel our pain
Or is the lonely soaring life
Your everyday normal

Today at d’Verse, Grace asked us to us personification in our poem. Hawks are such magnificent creatures. I love when they come and visit me from time to time. This one was much closer than most, asserting his dominance of the territory perched next to my bird feeder. I can almost tell what he is thinking as he rests on my deck rail.
