Red-Tailed Hawk Tanka

One Single Impression: Prompt 111: Vicarious





red-tailed hawk dances
overhead    circle loopings
plots his killing swoop
covets fleet-foot rabbit style
grounded   running    loping    stride

(You have Tanka, I have Tonka.)

Love how you can feel the tension in this. It's exactly what it's like to see it happen.

Many images brought to mind here, Sue. From an old cartoon to the chicken hawks we had in Nebraska and in between.
One also thought was of a Pacific gooney bird appearance if yours were to try the running rabbit bit on landing.
