The Eagle's Snatch - A poem about the African Fish Eagle by Munir Virani
Munir Virani — in East Africa Project    Share

The ear-piercing call of the African Fish Eagle shatters the dawn silence

A flurry of water birds scatter across the water's surface

The whooshing of eagle wings sends cold chills to the petrified birds as the golden glow of the sun emerges over the escarpment

With a sudden swoop, legs thrown aback, the eagle snatches a fish from the icy cold waters

The kill is done as Africa awakes to yet another dawn filled with hope
