Crow and Moon - Five Very Brief Poems

Writers' Pantry #72 

 photo prompt: The Sunday Muse #162

 

 

Crow,

or idea of Crow.

Moon's

interpretation.



Crow admires.

Crow-in-moon admires back.


a moon

a crow

my soul is filled

 

Crow and Moon

meet in reflection,

their own counsel to keep. 


Crow,

speak to me,

tell me secrets

of the moon.

  3. I am very fond of corvids and so enjoyed your poems, Lisa. I can’t choose a favourite, but the last one does link to Marja’s sacred secrets.

    1. Corvids are my favorites! I "talk" to the crows that sit in my cedar trees. Some of them meow at me!

  4. I like crows too, mainly because they are not normally afraid of us but tolerate our presence.
