Morning on the Hackensack River

Bald Eagle Eating Fish at Secluded Stretch of Hackensack River (Jan Barry/photo)

By Jan Barry

A confluence of eagles
at a narrow bend in the river
lined with gnarled old branches
leaning over the water
flowing between snow-crusted
stretches of woods—
the silence broken by commuter
trains, truck engines, Canada
geese, mergansers foraging for fish
