The night eagle
The sky tells us as much about our time here, as about the stories of old...
Telling time through the sky's eagleThe night eagle, as it is known by the gripplis in Yuelral's gift soars in the sky throughout the year. But as the seasons come and go, the night eagle moves through the sky, as a shadow of the eagles living below.
When it is hot, and the bush is ready to burn, the eagle is hungry and ready to hunt. We must be careful then, and not leave Yuelral's gift unless necessary. What happens as we welcome the colder days?
The night eagle fights in the sky, too preoccupied defending its territory, as younger eagles fight for a chance to replace them in the sky.
Indeed... During the long, cold nights, the night eagle spends all its time dancing, searching for a mate...
... and when the warm starts to return, the crows and the magpies attack the eagle in turns. Then, the eagle has to defend themselves. The night eagle reminds us that all under the sky are vulnerable, at some point or another, for the balance must not be disturbed.
