bald white and menacing black

wings spread to four-, nearly five-foot pan

he lifts from stubbled grain field

wings spread to four-, nearly five-foot span

clawed feet tuck in at underbelly

slow dip from muscular shoulders

natural glory of a magnificent predator

clawed feet tuck in at underbelly
