The Eagle Came Round

Rating: 5.0
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.
