Raven's Shadow

                                    Raven’s Shadow



                                   Staring beady eyed
                              Collecting for winters nest 
                                   Natures unique post


                                    Silky shiny black
                               Dawn-to-dusk itinerant
                                 Multitasked creature


                               Suave wings casted wide
                             Full shadow imprint on moon
                                    Solo transporter


                                     Beak fluid sounds
                            Winter snow cloaked by congress
                                   Envy your freedom




                                                                     © Shane Cogan 2013

    I loved this poem, Shane! I too, envy the freedom that all animals have. This brought to mind one of my favorite poems, "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe. Amazing imagery in this poem, as well! Great work!...Thank you for the kind comments!

    This had some cool lines in it. I especially enjoyed the alliteration of cloaked by congress. That was an awesome image in the last one!

    Very unique and creative work that you have penned..I feel that this one is actually a political work..Sara

    Thanks, Sara. Actually this one is not political at all (just nature). But I can see how it could be viewed that way...
