New Poem: predatory bird

This mainstream, 5-7-5, bird haiku was inspired by a sighting of a Broad-winged Hawk.  I looked out of my kitchen window this morning, and there it was on my deck, mere feet away from where I stood.  According to The Guide to Kansas Birds, this hawk is rarely seen and then only during migration and then typically not until April (perhaps this one is a harbinger of climate change).  Its majesty took my breath away.
