Shake no Spears

I am Crow:

Image result for crow

Blood eater,

Sinshitter,

Sleepstealer;

Shake no puny spears

In my direction, for

Your mountains of death

Are no barrier

To my progresses …

and next time you

Come across my silhouette,

Hear my lid-of-coffin voice –

In sunlight or darkness,

In hours of labour,

Love, thought or rest–

Take heed;

It is no accident

That you are sometimes

Brushed by my feather-light shadow:

Think on, mortal,

Of the things you must

And the things you mustn’t.

  1. I’m going to take another look at that murder of crows roosting in my neighbor’s Sequoia tree.

      Smiling here at the thought: there was just one day where whatever I was doing, wherever I was a crow (sometimes a jackdaw but poetic licence right?) was nearby: busy or watching.
