Kinship
By John Cannon

I am so blessed
to live among hawks,
 
Itís second nature now,
an unconscious habit,
to track a hawkís flight
whenever Iím outdoors,
 
Itís as natural
as sensing the movements
of someone
youíve lived with for years,
 
An immediate awareness
of presence,
and the feelings
that attach to that intimacy;
 
The slightest movement
of a hawk in the air
draws my eyes automatically,
 
And with instant recognition
comes a joyous feeling
of kinship.
