The Lady and the Falcon #PoetryFriday

Laura Shovan’s February Daily Poetry Project is well underway. Group members have provided some fabulous inspiration for our daily exercise. The stunning woodblock print below was created by the grandmother of one participant. It is a treasure for sure and transported me back to the medieval period when falconry was a sport of Kings and the finest ladies in court were often seen with their falcon. The latest accessory! Here’s an attempt at a tanka inspired by Milady.

  1. I liked it before and here, too, Christie. Telling of that “Master of the Mews” says so much. She isn’t as free as it seems. Love your response to this print.
