A Peregrine Falcon

A peregrine falcon masters the sky
its wings majestically arched with flair,
soaring with the elements eye to eye.

In a flurry of speed it flashes by 
serenely aloof untethered and rare,
a peregrine falcon masters the sky.

Sunlight gilds feathers as soft as a sigh
flickering flecks that ignite in the air, 
soaring with the elements eye to eye.

Naturally nimble graceful and spry
inspiring both audacity and dare,
a peregrine falcon masters the sky.

Riding an invisible thermal high 
it swoops me up and then I am there, 
soaring with the elements eye to eye.

Like poetry in motion wingtips fly
and awed by its beauty I can but stare.
Soaring with the elements eye to eye,
a peregrine falcon masters the sky.


(A “villanelle” poem.)

Tortured Souls

Tortured souls breaking free

outward bound into the night
tortured souls set me free

when you find your destiny
everything will be alright
tortured souls breaking free

let us go now finally
take this chance to set things right
tortured souls set me free

calm your fears and stay with me
gathering the strength to fight
tortured souls breaking free

holding on to what you see
looking into dawns first light
tortured souls set me free

why can't you just let me be
stay out of my wavered sight
tortured souls breaking free
tortured souls set me free

A Bump in the Road

(Terrorist Attack-Benghazi 9/11/12)

The Navy Seals absorbed the brunt
of fire al-Qaida thugs bestowed
and died in battle near the front,

stood tall with courage to confront
a vile assault of bitter mode.
The Navy Seals absorbed the brunt

on rooftop stand, machine gun stunt,
a grim attack, defenders slowed,
and died in battle near the front.

As choked in soupy smoke, the hunt
for those alive, true effort owed,
the Navy Seals absorbed the brunt.

The dozens saved in rescue shunt
as teams of seals took up the load,
and died in battle near the front.

A callous chief then voiced it blunt,
and termed it as “A bump in the road.”
The Navy Seals absorbed the brunt,
and died in battle near the front.

Villanelle: Teach not a dog how not to bark

Villanelle : Teach not a dog how not to bark
   (This dog the mawkish villanelle baulks)

Teach not a dog how not to bark
   Dogs bark for a lark in the dark
When Masters mawkish dreams embark

Do dogs bark to ape human talk
   Or wake Masters to take side-walk
Teach not a dog how not to bark

Each dog howls up some Jack’s Bean Stalk
   For the wolf in the dog must stalk
When Masters mawkish dreams embark 

Do dogs bark to make the dingo baulk
   At some sick Master’s leash-end talk
Teach not a dog how not to bark

Each dog lifts its leg at some bark
   Don’t preachers too leak after dark
When Masters mawkish dreams embark 

Every dog knows it must bark
Every dog knows its own bark
Teach not a dog how not to bark
When Masters mawkish dreams embark
