Battle in the Blue #tanka

talon to talon
dance with feather and the wind
who will own the sky
where winged angels are not safe
hawks compete for patch of blue

This was written for Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge. This is the first Tuesday of the month, so it was a poet’s choice week. I chose to write a tanka based on this photo I took two years ago.

      Thanks, Colleen! These two were hunting, do large circles, and every so often the circles would get too close and one would chase the other away. I have about 50 shots of the two of them including three different little battles (I was in a kayak).
