In the Gyre

Falcons fly
through the gloaming
oscillating double gyres
light and shadow
caught in time

  1. “gloaming” is such an awesome word, I love to see it used in poetry, and then you stacked it with “oscillating double gyres” bringing the vivd landscape of your words to life in my imagination.

  2. You catch the minimalist feel of this image nicely here, marousia, yet endow it also with depth and symbol. Enjoyed it.

  3. Yes the picture gives us a sense of time in flight. Something that is always difficult to capture, but we’re aware of constantly. Great movement in a small poem. Well done
