Lazy circles; yes, I know it's hunting, but I often envision the "Contrary."

this hawk
seeks a leafless homestead

a daily cross road...well caught, by the hawk :)

oh, i just noticed the change in the note, Magyar...and i must say, i've often seen your observation and seldom thought otherwise,

infact i came to say...that i read "seeks" as "sees" in the first instant...and hence the comment went so :)

crossroads bring change, the view is clearer for hunting on the bare branches

It's the circles of life...literally. We had a hawk stop by the garden the other day. Three crows soon made his visit unbearable. I wished I'd had my camera, but it was wet and foggy. So instead I just got to enjoy the moment.

It is a time of crossing over, ypur poem acknowledges this.

We had a hawk swoop down and snatch up a squirrel. Awful ending to that little guys life.

Very deep,it reminds me of a quote in "Hagakure",To quote_

According to what one of the elders said,
taking an enemy on the battlefield,
is like a hawk taking a bird...
even though it enters into the midst of a thousand of them,
it gives no attention to any bird other than the one it has first marked.

One day while I was playing golf, the strangest thing happened to me--a thing that I will remember forever. I was standing on a tee box, waiting to take my turn, when a large hawk flew over my head and out in front of me. For several seconds I became the hawk. I could feel feathers ruffling in the wind, and I could feel myself trying to keep balanced and aloft. It was the strangest sensation I have ever had. I have seen many hawks since that day, and have watched them closely, but I have never been able to replicate that feeling again.

__Judie... I love that moment's discovey you had had. That magic of assumption that makes you what you see. Great !! _m
