Above the prey

With her regal wings
and her majestic gaze
she flew miles above the ground
floating for hours
paying attention to minute details
of all life happening down below
here on the Earth
she was an observer
she was above all
she was a hawk

for us, the prey,
down here on the ground
she was the ultimate predator
and we would hide
when the sight of her could be spotted
far far away in the seamless sky

she flew so far above ground
that she was almost always
only a small dot in the vast sky
and she would come down here
only if absolutely necessary

where she came from
and where she went,
nobody knew
and she coasted so far
so that nobody knew
of the thousand scars
she bore under her wings.
