December 12 - December 16 Week 47/72


I scanned the ice blue sky all week

hoping to see the eagle again

like an eager child bursting with excitement

taking skyward glances every few minutes

searching and searching

for the first promised snowflakes

of a school-cancelling nor'easter until

eventually moving onto other things

just when it is the last thing on my mind

dark wings appear spread wide against

a thick quilt of snow laden clouds

soaring on the building wind carrying

the first dusting of sparkling white joy
