Series Info | Table of Contents

crows gather
their inky feathers blending
with shadows and dusk
they roost
a sinister circle
restless in the gloom
the gleam of their eyes
betraying the cleverness lurking there
ravens mutter
their usual staccato calls
muted by anticipation roiling
beneath the calm of nightfall
they wait
omens from another age
they wait
for the one

Next: clouds

I’m late finding this series, so just starting out. This first piece has me delighted I’m diving in. I’m a poet as well, hopeful to start a series soon. I’m looking forward to reading more of your work.
