Horses and Eagles

by Cheryl Merrick

The horses gallop together,
     strong and beautiful,
their hooves firmly striking the earth,
     all senses ever alert,
living fully in the moment.

Overhead, a lone eagle soars
     in a world where unseen currents
     lift him effortlessly to new heights.

The horses and eagle gaze upon each other,
     neither wishing to trade
     their connection to the earth,
     nor their view from the sky.
