The Raven and the Dove

The dark raven’s soulful flight goes singing Where an evening song bird blends in the skies Making flight into the grand wilderness Tender is the dove that goes up and flies The two birds as one entwine together But they are like two different beings The raven so dark and evil attacks While the dove, full of love, counters and sings White brightens around the darkest raven Suffocating the raven’s great powers And takes the life right out of the raven Darkness lost, dove conquers all that cowers Flying, the dove coos in joyful triumph Reaches the death of the raven below Resurrects the bird as a dove, and now They go along together as one show

    Dear Russell, I am so glad you have light overcoming the darkness. In a way, the poem reminds me of the movie "The Black Swan." You are a master of imagery and I'm glad you're a "dove." I've missed everyone, Russell, but I can only sit up straight for about an hour before my back hurts. Worse still - my hair really is green in the back and none of my neighbors even mentioned it!?# Thank you for your kind words. Love and blessings, Carolyn

    Opposites can attract, eh? It almost seems like a metaphor for how Yin & Yang became one. That said, this was a good fixture in my mind as i read it. I enjoyed what you did here.
