Explanation of the name white Eagle. Let fly the winds of intrigue within our imaginations and onto the paper of love.

I had a problem when I took a nickname. It was not meant to be disrespectful but to some I intruded and to others I became an Indian. I took the White Eagle name out of the purity of white blessings and the free flight of the eagle. It is what I call Open Air poetry for it comes as a breathe of fresh air unhindered. It is a way of getting into yourself in the softest of ways for you to picture images within yourself. It is to feel yourself float within your own imagination where the magic comes into play. It is about creating music in the words that touches yourself in such a way, that you want to fly onto the open air and glide your thoughts. Yes this is White Eagle poetry it rides the wind.

The sun rises as the wind yawns
Stretching through the canyons of intrigue
From the cliffs it lifts my eagle
Out of its nest

As it spreads its wings out of my mind
It reaches out so far
That it glides in free thought

It tries to capture the things so pure
That they have never been seen before
A thought so fresh as to think on its own

Creating the music that moves you along
To wander down the trails of open air
Which will overlook everything

In its peering eyes my eagle gives me insight
Into the world that want to doubt
The beauty within someone who thinks
In an open mind of creativity

For must he be very strange
As to be so different
As you set the trap
To open up their minds
To the beauty of letting their fantasies go
Flying wild in the wind of that intrigue
Letting their feathers get ruffled in delight

Yes Open Air poetry
Lets get high
Higher
Explode in the delight of it

And for those that want to take my eagle
And claim it for themselves
My eagle has no owner
And it can fly with whom it wants

And in the spirit of the Indian nations
It always has blessed them
For they have seen the light
And have ridden the winds along side of it

I borrow the name White Eagle
Out of the respect it flies with
My eagle happens to be white
For the purity of the soul within

It also takes the power of white
And takes its brilliance into you
To shine on you
And warm your soul
But hopefully not to hot
As to forget

That the magic I create in the words
That may fly off with you
Can only go as far as you
Let them go free inside
And stretch your own wings

P.S. To those that have blessed me with comments, I thank you. To those that read this and enjoy it, I bless you. For this poet who does not have enough time to comment on other poets work enough, I am sorry. My flight is running right now and I have to get things done quickly. I always fear downdrafts of depression.
