Peregrine Falcon by Mike Michaels


Plummeting daylight meteor

Hurtling from on high

Avian arrow

Let loose from Apollo's bow

-

No human invention can exceed your device

Nor eclipse your beautiful motion

No aria, no symphony

No painting, no sculpture

Can evoke such soaring emotion

Well done Mike! I love that bright shining eye! Great photo, nice and sharp. Hard to photograph such a fast bird. Well done!
