(Well, almost wordless. I can’t resist SOME explanation)
In one of those golden moments in Ethiopia
I sat on the steps of the staff housing
at the base camp in Arb Gebya
watching Hawk in flight.
He’d smelled the remains of the goat
they’d slaughtered for our supper
and he hoped for a morsel.
Soundlessly, he landed
on a fence not far from me.
As I fixed my camera on him
he spread his mighty wings
and took flight.
I thank you
for the brief and beautiful visit.
