eclipse

Falconers eyes are like scales 

weighing the sun and moon-those
of the falcon prison gold bars, wings
-two arks. The moon weighs icebergs 
and deserts-it has two spaces to calculate
life and death-it's breath and that of the 
sun intermingle. Tales and myths are 
preserved in a birds flight. The sun, moon
and the falconer have their hands on gold
prison bars.

Enjoyed the reference(s) to the guilded cage, but I'm really excited how the moon's breath and that of the / sun intermingle. I picture both in the sky on a hot and humid day with morning haze about. A nice follow-up to "Eulogy for a falcon."

Hi Barry,  At first read I thought I had read this before,  Then realized it was an expansion on your EulogyFor a Falcon.  They compliment one another and should be linked.  More amazing imagery.  The sun and the moon imprison us all so we must make the most of each moment.
