Amid the jagged shadows

THE RAVENS

“Amid the jagged shadows of mossy leafless boughs;”
A raven convocation croaks harsh judgement on our sin
No matter exculpation and our deeds it disavows
Their conscience incarnation claws the viscera within

Til confession and contrition bring the soul’s dark night to day
In bright winter morning sun the boughs stand clear and free of shade
Those black crows gather now in jaunty comic antic hay
On the grass our feet may tread freed from the prison that we made

Great writing my friend! For sure our world is the reflection of our souls. The ravens know. And no exterior measure will cure permanently anything until we positively treat the source. Love this work! Joe.

Thanks for your perceptive comments, Joe. I see we have a similar view of the crow family and their metaphoric image. Best wishes.
