the pilgrimage

the dark raven 
beckons my soul
amids quaint kackling of
the jackels mangling hisses 
i witnessed flowers bloom 
as the giant oaks
began to kneel at my feet
i witnessed his face 
why i heard his voice
the mauve sky rumbled 
the clay ground crumbled 
at this beautiful coming
sweet jerusalem in view
the clouds took a bow 
as the sun rose over
the weeping sea 
the earth lifted tilted
pouring salted tears into 
the ravishing springs 
leading to rivers edge 
where naught is bathing 
my heart on fire 
at this coming desire
upon mount olives 
zion is removed 
my soul grooved
the master's plans 
created in his hands
a holy reunion 
of spirit and man

    The raven in Norse mythology is a negative creature (Vikings may disagree!) but Yolanda, you seem to have metamorphosed it into a positive symbol. Clever. Best wishes, Peter Peter Dorr 15/12/13
