“A red-winged hawk is circling”
Tom Petty 1950-2017
He glides towards me
face to face at eye level
on my morning walk, swoops
into an old magnolia. He settles
his feathers and returns my gaze,
eyes shining a message of light
and life. l smile,thinking of Apollo,
music,and a golden-haired man learning to fly.
