The Eagle

I am sure you all will enjoy Speedy's latest contribution, just as much as I did.

The Eagle
By Mahendra Gonsalkorala


High above the mountains and dales
casting a moving shadow as he sails
Serenely gliding in the peaceful air
broad wide wings outspread with flair
Arrogant steely eyes that seek
with telescopic vision beamed on the meek
Surveying the land beneath for prey
disdainful expression, ready for the fray
performing elegant swoops with grace
his domain, his realm, his space.
Poise and magnificence acknowledged
Ruler of the skies, King unchallenged

Now begins soaring rapidly
becoming a distant speck swiftly
Time ceases for a moment
harnessing power dormant
Looms into view again,
a missile from heaven,
swooping down,
gathering speed,
bright shiny eyes focused,
chasing its hapless prey.
Descends on it ruthlessly
pouncing with its talons
in a blurred frenzy of motion.
No mercy, no distraction
the victim never had a chance
Rises majestically carrying its prey
disappearing into the heavens
Ruler of the skies, King unchallenged

  1. This has real class! It brings to one's mind a vivid picture, like a video, of this Ruler of the Sky, swooping down gracefully, then gathering speed, pouncing on the victim and carrying him away back to the skies! Well done Mahendra!

  10. American guys would not visit other countries for love/sex for any variety of causes.
    The first is that if most girls in the U.S. were not so body fat.
    Confident you can find males that can not manage to journey or are uninelligent, in order that they settle for any
    unwanted fat woman and reside a dull lifestyle even if they say
    their spouse or girlfriend is "hot" however the dimension of the Ford Tundra.
    The second is only a minority of ladies are super sizzling within the U.
    S. A low percentage of scorching ladies in
    the united states, tends to make them select both some muscle buff
    homos or some billionare. Amongst the youthful scorching girls, they're sexually turned off by intelligence of any type or sophistication.
    So what ought to a guy of respectable appears using a higher education do ? Go settle for some fatty ? Why need to he, when he features a higher likelihood in getting the daily life he desires in other places on this planet, Look at the the years he missed out in university exactly where sizzling women haven't any sexual interest in intelligence
    and use MTV as their standard of the man. Logically talking, it's much better for an educated man of respectable appears to visit locations where the vast majority of girls are
    super hot and unique including Japanese Europe/Russia,components of Latin The us, and some parts of Asia.
    So why do ladies in the united states, and their closeted gay male supporters lash out at their fellow American males for enjoying daily life or in search of out a actual life ? I have no difficulty if ladies chose a life they want, why can not guys ?
