Eagle and Hawk. It’s a 6.

The two separated by fate and circumstance, longing and desire insufficient to alter what came to be. Going around and around and ’round, timeless circling above – patient vultures, messengers without direction.

Immersed in stress, self doubt achieving dominion, forward momentum adrift, scattered to the four winds. Nothing left now but life’s filter to sift the debris until clarity achieved.

Emboldened and airborne, desire driving the instinct for survival, thrust lifts them to extraordinary heights, a landscape is revealed. They soar….

    Nice expression, both sound and meaning: “sift the debris until clarity achieved”

      Thank you, Frank. Yeah, I’m fond of that bit as well. While never guaranteed, clarity is available.

    Sounds like a happy ending. And another poetic bit of prose. Great Six!
    And hello, I’m back from a dive down a rabbit hole at youtube since being introduced here to Jon Batiste (he came up after the feature film)
    All good.

    I have to go with “sifting the debris” as my fave pick too–EXCELLENT!! And some days, I actually succeed in getting that coveted clarity, hah!!!

    Surely there must be a way, a method, a knowing that would allow us to see the past as it might have been and, by looking forward, commit ourselves that much more for acting and being true to ourselfs… while there is no practical value (imo) in the facts of the past, properly approached it should have a value to us, in terms of, as we say at the Wakefield Doctrine, ‘Appreciating how we relate ourselves to the world around us.’

      I agree that there must be a way… then maintaining that commitment to self. It is key.
      Thank you for your comment, Clark. Gives me pause to reconsider and reconnoiter.
