Two Wings and the Wind

365 challenge



Driving round the corner it catches my eye,

Face forward, flying high

No not flying, but lying sturdily aloft,

In a wind breast upping

Resplendently reclining, two wings at full flight,

Strides, gripping an egis,

Whose natural motion of gruff galloping muscles

Aiming at who and what,

For the soreness of the wind beats through a wooden door,

Tearing a house in two.
