Raven Made Her Choice

Perched upon his resting place, Raven made her call She planned to join her lover, using powder and a ball Gazing at the markers where the predeceased were laid She watched her namesake circle, and heard his woeful voice, Then mused the circumstances that took her partner’s life. Could sacrifice unite them? Is there an afterlife? And listening to the chilling call, Raven made her choice. For ~~A Rambling Poet~~ and the contest: Among The Dead by Ray Dillard

    I had only read a couple of the poems and wanted so badly to enter but...too many things were going on and didn't get to. I knew Constance would have a time selecting her winners. There is a long list of winners here. You should be so proud of your winning poem congratulations Ray. Love, Carol

    Just the thought of reuniting in the afterlife provided a positive ending to a sad act of suicide for Raven. I've heard those who take their own lives are forbidden from heaven, but how are we to know? Excellent poem, Ray. Congratulations on your big win! Love, Carolyn
