Aquila, Cygnus, Phoenix,
Corvus, Columba, Apus ...

Constellations catching the flight idea
as in a photography.

Aquila ...
The strongest bird ...
You may have tortured Prometheus once,
but now ...
I can admire your long wings,
I can study your proud head
named Altair --
a star signifying force and stateliness.
I can respect your attitude of winner.

Certainly, the sky is
the best photographer.
