  1. Heart taken aloft by the idea of the wing or snatched like a rodent by the eagle? Either take is lovely as is the twist of the two ideas together. Sweet surrender to the sky.


    • Alice, I just wrote the poem. A reader can interpret it any way she wants. When I write haiku, I try to convey a specific feeling I had in a given moment in time. But the reader is free to interpret the poem based on her own experiences and feelings. That being said, you can rest assured, I’ve never been carried off by an eagle.:) My ‘moment’ was a contemplative one, the result of meditation. Thanks for reading and commenting. It is so helpful to get feedback on how a poem is read and interpreted by others!



  2. What a lovely place to be taken where the heartbeat of serenity dwells. An eagle’s whispering wing… I love this phrase. Brilliant take on the prompt!


Thank you!
