The Eagle Came Round - Poem by elysabeth faslund

The Eagle came round, with
Slicing sound, swooping,
Talons uncurled...

Buried them into the Tower's
Dragon...then thru the
Midnight swirl...

Storms, seas, and spray
Higher than Tintagel's walls
Talons hurling...

A raging Dragon thru the
Candlelit window, where that
Night, laughter
Heard...

When a newborn fondled
The Beast to silence...
Arturia, the Dragon,
The word
Of Becoming....

    What a powerhouse! Fabulous sense of dynamic movement and primal energy, No one starting to read line one would imagine that this volatile mythic poem could achieve such a soft landing at its conclusion. (Report)Reply
