Never Again

never again

never again will i
be able to see
the majesty of the
orca fin
swimming in the
sound and playing
with her children
while belly-flopping
salmon.

never again will
i see the bald eagle
soaring overhead
with the only intent
of being himself and
gathering prey while
basking in the glorious
sunshine.

never again
will i have an
oregon silverspot
land on my shoulder
hitching a ride
as i ramble along
a barren path of
evergreen.

never again.

For National Poetry Month and the Writing Prompt of Poetic Asides (never again) and NaPoWriMo
