Majestic Eagles

All types of animals, birds & insecs are very interesting. Many are under attack, but many people like to learn everything about nature.

Majestic Eagle

Majestic Eagle

Prompt

Brenda Arledge put up a prompt for the word " majestic" today. While I have never written any poetry ever I did today, so with her encouragement I will post my poetry. I appreciate honest comments as I know I am not really a poet. Thank you to all.

Majestic Eagle

Majestic Eagle

Eagles are an awesome bird, and this poetry is meant to write about their majestic presence in our world.

Majestic Eagle: The King of Birds

Majestic eagles soar through the skies

Their flight is surely a delight to our eyes,

As we gaze upon their sacred wings

The joy of flight makes our hearts sing


Eagles soar toward the full moon or sun

Their flights are faster than we can run,

Their lonely flight we do not understand

As he soars above a beautiful, desolate land


Eagle eyes can easily spot a meal

This majestic bird can make me feel,

The exalted eagle wishes to eat fish

For this splendid bird it is a tasty dish


The majestic eagle looks ahead

Eagle-eyed vision may turn his head,

He soars toward the sun or the moon

The ocean beneath him makes me swoon


The eagle represents the sky gods

As we seek the truth, not the frauds

Majestic Eagle Saves Babies From Sun

Hi Heidi,

I hadn't thought about that, but I agree as I know some birds are quite loud. The eagle is such a big bird that you would expect them to louder.

I appreciate your comments. Take care.

Heidi Thorne from Chicago Area on March 16, 2021:

You know what surprises many people is that the sounds eagles make are not as powerful as they expect. Hawks have a much more commanding call.

Nice tribute to this amazing creature!

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 09, 2021:

Hi Devika,

I am glad you liked the poem and I appreciate your comments,

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on March 09, 2021:

Hi Pamela99 I sometimes see eagles mostly falcons. I like your poem about Majestic eagles. You have written an amazing poem just love it.

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 09, 2021:

Hi Flourish,

It is wonderful that you get to see them so often. They are majestic birds. Thank you for reading and commenting.

FlourishAnyway from USA on March 08, 2021:

This is a majestic poem that honors our national symbol, the eagle. I live near some eagle’s nests (near a riverbank) and for years have spotted them in their enormous nests raising their young. Absolutely beautiful.

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

hi Alyssa,

After the encouraging comments today I think I will pursue wed writing some more poetry. I am so glad you enjoyed reading this poem.

Thank you so much for your comments. I hope you have a great week!

Alyssa from Ohio on March 08, 2021:

This is a beautiful poem, Pamela! I enjoyed reading it and I hope you'll continue to explore writing poetry. :)

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Thank you so much, Brenda. You are the only reason I even tried to write a poem, so thank you so much.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on March 08, 2021:

Pamela,

I love reading all these compliments on your poem.

I agree, you need to keep writing more.

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Hi Ann,

Holding the wedge-tailed eagle on your arm must have been an exciting moment.

Eagles really are majestic birds that fascinate most of us. I hope I can write another poem that captures the topic. I enjoyed writing this one, but I didn't know if it was any good. I appreciate all the praise, and I think I will try my hand at writing some more poetry.

Thank you for your comments, Ann. I always appreciate what you have to say. I hope you have a wonderful week.

Ann Carr from SW England on March 08, 2021:

Well, Pamela, you are indeed a poet!

I love birds of prey, especially eagles. We have buzzards soaring above us here but only in Scotland can we see eagles and I'm at the other end of Britain! I did, however, hold a wedge-tailed eagle on my arm when in Australia at a bird sanctuary - amazing!

Your poetry picks up the majesty of such a bird's flight, their ability to go as high as anything and look far down below, their savagery and their beauty. You captured it well. Also, those photos are superb!

So, Pamela, are we to look forward to more poems from you? I hope so.

Ann

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Hi Fran,

Maybe you are like me and just need to try writing a poem. I never did before, but now I have had wonderful, positive feedback. I love eagles, which made writing about them easier.

I am glad you liked the poem. Have a great week!

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Hi Vidya,

I do feel encouraged to write some more poems. The eagle is a majestic bird, so writing about it was not too difficult.

Thank you so much for your comments. Have a good week.

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Hi Ruby,

I am glad that you thought the poem was good. I actually enjoyed writing it as I thought of the eagle as soon as I saw the word 'majestic'.

Thank you so much for your comments. I hope you have a wonderful week.

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Hi Shauna,

I have been tempted to try writing poetry several times, so I am glad I finally wrote a poem. As soon as I saw the word majestic I thought of the mighty eagle.

I may try some more poetry, and I am so glad you liked this one. Thank you so much for your comments. Have a great week, Shauna!

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Hi Miebakagh,

The eagle is the most powerful bird and actually watching one is a treat.

Thank you so much for your comments.

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Hi Manatita,

I like all of those birds you mentioned. I am glad you liked my poem. It is not exactly on the same level as your beautiful poetry, but I am still happy with the result of my efforts.

Thank you for your lovely comments and for your ongoing support. Blessings.

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Hi Rosina,

I never felt amazing, Rosina! I very much appreciate your very kind words.

I think I need to be more open minded about trying new types of writing. i love to write most anything.

Thank you so much Rosina. I appreciate your comments and your ongoing support. Have a wonderful week!

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Hi John,

It seems every one like eagles. Praise from you about my poem makes me feel so happy. I may try some more poems as everyone has been so kind.

Thank you so much for your comments. Have a wonderful week.

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Hi Linda,

I am so glad you enjoyed the poem. Yes, I love the eagles, which made writing the poem easier.

I appreciate your comments. I pray you have a very good wek.

fran rooks from Toledo, Ohio on March 08, 2021:

Pamela, beautiful poem. I love the eagles! I sure wish I could write a poem! Thanks for your poem.

VIDYA D SAGAR on March 08, 2021:

A very good first poem Pamela. It brought out the picture of the majestic bird and its soaring glory so well. congratulations and we look forward to reading more of your poems.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on March 08, 2021:

Who said that you couldn't write poems? You can and you did and it was beautiful. Majestic is the correct word for the Eagle. They are truly a wonder.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on March 08, 2021:

Pamela, I think you did an amazing job of not only responding to Brenda's word prompt challenge, but creating your first poem! It flows well, has great rhythm and had me soaring with this majestic eagle.

Great job! You should try more poetry. I think you have a knack for it.

Miebakagh Fiberesima from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on March 08, 2021:

Linda, the eargle is the most powerful bird that can fly majestically towards the Moon or Sun. You poem describe the action well. Thanks.

manatita44 from london on March 08, 2021:

Not only 'majestic' but they are quite cute in the video too.

Pamela your poem is awesome! No sublimity and loftiness needed from the Lantern Carrier, but great simplicity and visuals in your piece. To the point and extremely beautiful! Who says you're not a poet?

Eagles, Phoenix and Falcons, features a lot in my poetry. They are all know for their esoteric or spiritual qualities as well. A fabulous poem Pamela. Kudos to you for taking up Brenda's challenge. You made this prompt your own. Peace.

Rosina S Khan on March 08, 2021:

Wow Pamela! I am so excited for you. You are simply amazing. You read that correct. YOU ARE AMAZING. You have the flair of creativity for writing beautiful poems. You can be an amazing poet. In addition to writing medical articles, I have noticed you have good skills for writing fictions and book reviews as well. Does that convince you that you are amazing? I hope it does.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on March 08, 2021:

Well done Pamela. You captured the “majestic” eagle beautifully in your poem. The eagle is also one of my favourite birds. This may be your first but I hope not your last. A pleasure to read.

Linda Lum from Washington State, USA on March 08, 2021:

What a wonderful poem, Pamela. Don't allow yourself to think that you cannot write poetry--this proves that you do, and you do it well. The eagle is such a thrilling bird. No matter how many times I see them overhead, I'm always in awe (yes, I live where the eagles soar).

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Hi Chitrangada,

I really enjoyed writing the poem and I really like eagles, which I think was an inspiration for me. I may try some more poems now that I am a bit more comfortable.

Thank you for reading and commenting on my poem. I appreciate your support, Chitrangada. Have a good week.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on March 08, 2021:

This is a great poem, and beautifully done, from the word prompt, Majestic.

If it’s your first poem, then you deserve all the applause. Everyone has some kind of creativity in them, and I think you should write more of them.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece of writing.

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on March 08, 2021:

You may not consider yourself a poet, but your work argues against that opinion. Lovely work about one of my favorite creatures.

Linda Chechar from Arizona on March 08, 2021:

Who says, you cannot do poetry?

I can feel each and every word of the poem

Awesome words here:

As we gaze upon their sacred wings

The joy of flight makes our hearts sing

You did well with Brenda’s prompt

Thanks for the beautiful share

Blessings

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 08, 2021:

Hi Pamela,

If this is your first poem, you mastered it! You gave us the feeling of soaring with the eagles in the sky and observing the world below their gaze. I enjoyed reading it.

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Have a great week!

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on March 08, 2021:

Pamela,

This is a wonderful poem!

I am delighted you took the time to create this piece of work.

You are a Poet. Your words clearly show this talent, so do not undervalue this talent.

In the beginning, you capture us with these words,

Majestic eagles soar through the skies

Their flight is surely a delight to our eyes,

Then you take us through a journey of his world...

Ending with him being like a Sky God.

I have read poems that don't even cone close to being poetry.

You did Great!!

Thank you & welcome to the poetry world.

Have a great day.

Hi Liz,

Your praise makes me smile! I haven't written poetry since school, and we know that has been a very long time.

I appreciate your comments. Have a wonderful week!

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2021:

Hi MG,

I agree. They are magnificent birds. When I heard the word "majestic" they were the first thing I thought about. I didn't know you could find them in the desert.

Thank you for reading and commenting. Have a great week!

Liz Westwood from UK on March 08, 2021:

This is a well-illustrated and well-written poem. You should not under estimate your poetic talent.

MG Singh emge from Singapore on March 08, 2021:

Your article kindled my love for Eagles. I love these magnificent big birds. They are resilient creatures who can survive in extreme climates, even the desert in Abu Dhabi.
