The Prize

Dedicated to Brandy Brenna~

Three good friends canoe down the Kinni
each with their own bag of thoughts

on a journey upon her waters.
They travel with different strokes
following the calmer course
as they glide around a corner
they hear the air between his wings
before any of them see.

The fisherman in the rear
only noticed the fish,
the artist in the front
only saw the bird,
but in the center the dreamer
witnessed the marvel of both.

An Eagle great in essence and size
dove ahead of the trio
grabbing a huge trout in his claws,
hovering over the water,
flapping his powerful wings,
then flying away with his prize.
