The Sky Is Your Home

the falcon hunts 
its own nourishment
and flies courageously
above storms
that send lesser creatures 
scurrying for safety

the concerns of this world
have shackled your spirit

i see a falcon
crouched on the ground
arguing with insects
who think it is a threat
to the filth 
they scavenge
and revel in

what do they know
of your beauty
or your power?

what do they know
of what you eat
that makes you 
exquisite and strong?

but you do
don’t you?

the sky is your home
the heavens beckon you


and unfurl your wings
