Almighty Aviator

Crystal sea of glass;
throne of the creator is
an eagle in flight.

He sees from greater heights. A span of centuries supported on strong legs. The ultra-violet lighthouse of flesh, calling out to be shred by a keratin katana of a beak. He is the hungry hunter amidst scampering strays. Find him a loyal mate, if you aren’t suitable for prey. So mount up with wings of an eagle and streak the day.

and before the throne there was as it were a sea of glass, like crystal. And around the throne, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind: the first living creature like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature with the face of a man, and the fourth living creature like an eagle in flight.

  1. A clever take on the prompt, for sure. Your profile of the eagle is energetic and realistic. Your overview from biblical tomes is interesting.
