A vulture- a beautiful creature – no it’s not-
What do you think – I’m smoking pot?
They truly are awesome & graceful while soaring-
Gliding on the air waves no they are’t boring!
The seem to like flying alone, sometimes in a flock-
They are surveying the landscape- inspecting the dock?
They glide past our condo spying on our porch-
Wonder who lives there- are those snacks or a torch?
The breezier the better – how they play with the wind-
Never held back only to each other do they tend.
Not as high as the airplanes – but barely above the earth-
They are the masters of the sky- clearly their own turf!
Early in the morning they play in the sky-
And with the setting sun do they obediently fly!
They settle down in the trees, all comfy in their space-
Til’ dawn arrives, then again in the sky, take their place!
