Peregrine

Scimitar wings
cut through the air:
falcon of kings
watching,
a silent movie villain
twitching
his black moustache.

Dark and angular,
this fearsome hunter
hangs motionless.

Tail clenched,
closing wings into a stoop,
he bullets towards his prey,
banks and shoots away

out of sight.

Kim M. Russell, 2017

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Tale Weaver No 110 – Sight – 23rd March

This week we are weaving tales where sight is important. It could anything that brings physical and or spiritual satisfaction.
