Eagle Poem about Spirit Animals, Dreams and our shared Environment

Marc Latham’s latest poem is about those that inspire dreams in the sky; as well as the increasing danger to wildlife from a human population that has just grown by a billion to 7b in little over a decade, and with some leading thinkers calling for the West to race with China’s uncontrolled building program.

Although it is of course understandable that individual people and collective societies want to acquire a decent standard of living, or protect the one they already have.  Here’s the poetry:

Eagle Down

Imagination inspiration
preparing breakfast
over fantastic spread
swoops downstairs

through unknown tunnel

oncoming traffic
clips resplendent wings
spirit grounded
broken dreamcatcher
