If I Were A….

“If I were A…” is a prompt I found in my twitter feed a few days ago. You can check out more about this prompt here. Here’s my response to the prompt:

If I were a hawk

I’d glide through the ethereal

brushing the branches of trees

they’d shutter in their barks

at the gusts of wind

my wings generate.

I’d tear through clouds

of cotton

and pierce curtains of rain.

I’d swoop down

plucking a snack

from the earth

and soar to my perch

I shall sit upon

a wooden throne

of branches and leaves

eating my fill

and do it all the next day.

I am majestic in flight

my gaze is strong

have you seen me?

I don’t mean to boast

even when I screech

for attention,

I’ve heard and seen

many a crowd gazing up at me.

    I love this to bits! Great work. I would be part of that crowd gazing upon the hawk 🙂

    On a visual note, be aware that the lines of your background sometimes cut through your words, making them a little hard to read. Great poem, though!

    • Thank you for your feedback, Sophie! I’m glad you liked it. I suspected that I needed to fix my background but it’s always great to have a second opinion! 😀 P.S– thanks for reblogging!
