The falcon's heart

By emptybamboo

It was once said:
The falcon was created for the heart.

A spotty-fawn windhover
is sitting on my wrist;

a little falcon,
wild and flighty

she watches attentively,
she teaches me
to trust,
to fly,
to be
a changeable son of the wind.

All I can do is to believe.

Because today I definitely know:
A falcon is for heart.
A true heart is a falcon.

One of the very best poems I've ever read on this site, bamboo....a true masterpiece. I keep this write close & think upon it quite often. & oh yeah....I love to bird watch. Never had the pleasure of observing the falcon.

  • A former member wrote: "a changeable son of the wind"... an incredible line from such an insightful and soft-hued poem. this is inspiring and determined, made of the great stuff.

    bravo, my friend.... the finest piece I've read in a long time... you say so much in a poem that doesn't have a lot of wording... you should be proud of this piece
