on the clifftop

we watched a hawk
catch an updraft
wings spread
hovering in place
wavering ever so
slightly up and down

how marvelous
the way feathers
and hollow bones
allow her to
ride the invisible
to soar across the sky

however close
however tightly
we might hold on
i hope for us
to always feel
free like that
