Grapes~by Paul F. Lenzi





Image from

give the falcon its wing

starlings scatter in bursts

across blue vineyard skies

the grape unmolested

reclines into ripening

safe in its succulence

peacefully purpling

sweet with maturity

leaving the felons

the plumed iridescent

escaped murmuration

to seek a new roost

for rapacious designs

fear of strength

and its consequence

once again proven

the gentlest of weapons
