~ A Falconer’s Moment ~

~ A Falconer’s Moment ~

I have borne witness to
the joy,
the freedom,
the power and strength
in hollow bones and feathers.
Taloned feet
that grip and crush,
yet wings that float
to the top of the world.
Sharp eyes that fathom
depths of air.
From heights of glory,
a streamlined structure
dives
back to earth,
faster than a man can run.
With a glove,
a hood,
and a few strands of leather,
I have shared moments
with hawks and falcons
that words cannot describe.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.
