DMC: "What Do the Hawks Know?" by Keri Collins Lewis


What do the hawks know?
     To wait and watch, then zoom and munch.
     Talons pack a one-two punch.
     Not all prey has the same crisp crunch.

What do the hawks know?
     When spring winds blow, act on a hunch.
     Feathers may ruffle, wings bunch.
     Not every effort results in lunch.

Joyce Sidman has challenged us to write a "Deeper Wisdom" poem this month. What's a Deeper Wisdom poem, you ask? Click HERE for details.

Send your wise words to TodaysLittleDitty (at) gmail (dot) com, or use the contact form in the sidebar to the right. All contributions will be included in a wrap-up celebration this Friday, January 30th, and one lucky participant will receive an autographed copy of Joyce's gorgeous new collection of children's poetry:


  1. Talons or no talons, this little ditty sure packs one-two punch, Keri! The hawk's eye photo you found is amazing.

  2. Thanks for posting and for coordinating such a fun challenge. I posted my second Deeper Wisdom poem at http://kerirecommends.com/2015/01/double-deeper-wisdom-here-at-todays-little-ditty/. :-)

  3. This is a wonderful one. Thanks for sharing it here.

  4. While it's true that not every effort results in lunch, this effort resulted in a poetry feast! Love the hawk's eye view.
