Falconer - Poem by Francis Santaquilani

Soundlessly gliding in
From the backyard
Landing on his lap
Wrapping her arm
Around his shoulders
Without creasing his shirt
Slightly winded
Heart racing
Wearing no hood but a hat
Mute and perfectly still though
Eyes straight ahead
Wide open
Like a falcon resting on
The falconer's wrist
She'll do anything for him

    Like the tinge of jealousy to this. I think the relationship would also require some leather and lace? -chuck (Report)Reply
