I love this video I have watched it many times before and I’ve watched the bald headed eagles in Alaska the most beautiful powerful mystical being ever- sacred to the cultures up Nirth- their piercing cries warns and challenges the spirit as the fly free the king above many- one thing in life we can only be certain of is change- not always easy but best for growth and destiny- difficult paths lead to beautiful places- from pain comes beauty- wonderful words-🌹

A very haunting and beautiful video, and what a lovely idea for the re-birth of this magnificent bird.
Haiku and video go together so well :)

A pleasure my friend,:)
I'll admit, my internet has been so spotty for months, I haven't been likely to click on videos, but this one is well worth it. Nice to be back to the living, as far as modern computer & internet *wink! wink!* Since I've been aware of Native American spirituality since my 30's, I've known the meaning of eagle, which is similar to Great Spirit, in my mind. The way your poem is stated, it suggests that Great Spirit (thru messenger Eagle) throws shadows on our lives. People question this like it shouldn't happen. But why not? Life is for learning. Are we supposed to be coddled thru it? Then your last line is a little ambivalent in my mind, as far as suggesting that the eagle may be taking food FROM me or FOR me . . . an interesting juxtaposition with regard to seeing Eagle as messenger of Great Spirit. All in all, it's pretty remarkable to summon this much in my early-morning mind with only 17 syllables *wink! wink!* (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Seven feet!!! Enough to fit in a man and more! That's something!
and that is what nature had bequeath us but then we always have had doubts and they remain unappreciated and most of the times unfavored

I've been meaning to review this piece for quite some time now and to watch the video - forgive my laziness :x
I love the video and the information shared in it, as well as your haiku. I think it's an art to convey imagery through so few words and you excel in it here. :)

The reminds me of cape Breton. The earth gives and takes and if we survive the journey we'll have lived but if we have fought for survival the living tastes sweeter.
