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-🌹

Ahhhh....this takes me back into the wild...:) I was watching vultures, actually. Not as graceful as eagles, but the same principle applies.....

I was wondering whether the ending could have been a bit more dramatic.....I mean, if you or I take a banana from the table, we are "taking food", but a carnivore has to kill its prey, so there is a little bit more drama involved.....:) I watched an eagle or falcon catch a squirrel.....it's human nature to have sympathy for the "victim" but that's their cycle of life.

Great to see nature reaching our cafe of scribbles....:)

Reading your words... watching the video... breathing in the wonder of eagles. What an enchantment expressed through your thoughts. Sometimes the eagles come here... to Arkansas, the hills around me. And they are like the most sacred messengers. Even saw a hawk the other day dive into the field to capture her food. How your poetry becomes like their wings, lifting them higher.

Thank you so very, very much for posting this wonderful video.. i'll be up there with those magnifcent creatures for quite a while, their movements are mesmerising and calming. As to the words that accompany the visions (cos that's what they are)' they teach in the gentlest and most inspiring way.

Your haiku says as much as any few words can ever do. Many thank yous, Gene.

Very interesting video. I did not know about the 'hardship' and 'rebirth' of eagles. They are certainly magnificent birds. Your haiku does them justice.

Such amazing creatures. They are majestic to watch, as they swoop down into the ocean and pull out a meal to go. Can you imagine the strength of those talons? Incredible piece, Gene!

Somehow it reminded me of the power of something that is far more greater than us....the claim of it on our soul..... not sure if this makes sense.... :)

And eagles are majestic birds...
We believe the white neck eagle was the carrier for our Lord vishnu....so they are auspicious to us when we see one flying over head.... :)

"Eagles are the masters of the skies" what's better way to say it, and how Your special amazing Haiku says it Your own way, You wanted to say more, but You said it's enough, and it's enough, for me the title said it in the first place, if we are the masters of Earth, it never means we are the masters of the Sky, we much spread our wings and lift our spirits high as the eagle, the video and its hauntingly spiritual music still has its effect over me, I can imagine how it touched You deep, and You've raised Your spirit high Mr.E, it's like You've found Your self while watching it, and something deep inside You stirred, a special little Haiku, it holds sentimental yearning. honestly I never cared about being a master on Earth, maybe I can share Eagles their sky if they didn't hunt me already lol
