Falcon Fire...Shotgun Word Bank

The enemy marches 

men and horses

road appears supple

lies to well trained eyes

Upon the wall

beloved commander

before the populace 


Against baluster

leaning, unafraid

refusing to falter

keeping men united

Beyond the gate

a touch to a wick

simple spark reveals

power of falcon fire

Author's Notes:
Falcon here is a small light weight cannon.

I can feel the marching of warriors soldiering on, flying shrapnel, and blood spilt through this piece. Thanks for sharing.

Kim you always lead the general population here with wonderment.

I love the use of "lies" as what appears "supple," " unfaltering" and "united" are about the taste an unexpected bit,

great job

these challenges are turning up some very creative poems.  Yours was so full of wonderful images...a few words but it presents a big picture!  "road appears supple" ...loved that image!  great job, very creative!
