We Protect Our Young


We Protect Our Young

Eagle opens my heart.

Sitting on my right shoulder

his wing across my back,

he says quietly,

we protect our young.

My heart opens.

I think of my children

grown and in the world.

It resonates.

We protect our young.

My heart opens.

I know he means me.

I am his young.

I’m deepened.

I breathe and just be.
