During a Journey

During a journey through the mountains
I saw peaks that were robed in snow.
The lake below the glacier was cold.
I looked across its mirrored surface.

I saw a powerful eagle hunting for fish.
I watched it fly low and lift a salmon.
Its silent wings were full of power.
Its aerial dance was a sign of freedom
