From Crow Woman - The Darkstead Rhymes

He who weathers the swirling black feathers
Like a kill laid out by the skinner
One ninety-eight eyes
Across the night skies
With a story to tell the town spinner
And the Old Woman knows
It takes ninety-nine crows
To serve up a man Sunday dinner.

    Thanks Anne-Lise. Don't get online often but next time I do I will spend a few hours reading and responding. The poems I've posted are actually openers for short and long fiction stories I've written. They are each a micro-expression of plot or theme in a particular story. Not exactly great poetry, if poetry at all. Thanks for not destroying me with criticism. ( - :

    Whoops! Noticed I put Kids Poetry and For Kids. Big mistake, although I don't remember making that mistake. Yes, there's nothing inappropriate or profane in it, but the story behind it is not kid-appropriate. Must keep that in mind before posting again. Thank you for your warm welcome PDA.
