Winter Approaches

Juvenile Red-tailed Hawk

I wish her well.

Winter approaches swiftly.


Hungry times

Of frozen days.

This season will be her making.

I wish her well…


I took this photo in my backyard yesterday…I hope to see her throughout this winter.

    Beautiful raptor-isn’t the hawk a super threat to your birdfeeder?

    Beautiful picture composition, lovely poem.

    Thanks for reading my post about Lallie and commenting. I think we should always be present in the moment and love people as best we can. None of us knows how long we have, or others have.

    I’m going to try to post more often on my blog – you inspire me!

    Another inspired poem with a matching photo, just made to fit. I absolutely love this whole complete picture. Time stands still for no one.

      Many times I find a favorite photo THEN write a poem to go with it…works so well!
