Circling lazily in the sky,
scanning the earth, with her eagle eye.
Sensing danger, the rabbit lies prone,
as the hawk drops to the earth, like a stone.
Up, and running, for all he is worth,
the rabbit heads, for his hole, in mother earth.
With one giant smack,
talons tear into the rabbits back.
After gorging herself with all she can eat,
the hawke takes off, in the suns heat.
For back to the nest, she must fly,
to feed the young, or else they will die.
A life has ended, as life begins,
for this is natures way of doing things.
