Hawk in the Window

Original artwork by Joey Remmers

I gazed out of my hotel window at New York’s Central Park to admire the autumn colors of fiery lemon foliage in the gloaming light,
In a sudden flash a hawk landed on my window ledge where it seemed content to peer over its domain,
Was this bird of prey a vessel to pass on from this earth or a mysterious angel with a secret to say?
This regal hawk settled in on the ledge for the night as I slept with some new sense of an awakening that would forever stay,
The next morning the hawk and I were gone but I felt I was flying as a hawk into the ether skies in an enlightened way.
