Osprey

Do you see me
seeing you?

At times your
golden eye looks
into my telescope
stares into my lens

When I look away
you swoop past
in search of fish
or is it

you see me
seeing you

  4. superb poem about an incredibly special bird. Their eyes really are soul deep. You've caught their magic, and their being, beautifully.

  11. I am a voyeur watching you watching the bird. The layers of perspective make this brief piece quite powerful, effective. The bird's eye view... of course!
