Black Caw Crow

Black caw crow flies overhead black caw crow cries sounds of dread birds shiver in covert trees mice skitter, scatter and flee. Watercolor skies abound mournful clouds cling to the ground critters hide ‘neath fans of leaves silent refuge from the siege. Lazy slugs and snails alight peaking black crow’s appetite swooping down without a sound black crow strikes as raindrops pound. Black caw crow flies overhead black caw crow cries sounds of dread.

I liked the movement of the thoughts in the poem. The crow, a bird of mystery, always observing us. Very cool ending to the excellent poem dear Laura.

You certainly capture a moment Laura. I really like the imagery you evoke and the rhyming is superb! (Since you are a fan of crows you might like this. I once tossed the pieces of my sandwich out to the crow sitting nearby watching me. He swooped in, gathered each piece of bread and filling, re-built the sandwich and flew away with it! No kidding!) This, too, is a memorable piece you have here. Thanks!

Love this, Laura...the sounds, imagery and even the darkness. Love the “watercolor skies”. Fave!

Laura, in my mind, no animal is more ominous than the dreaded black crow. Another great nature write from your pen, full of imagery, poetic phrasing, and a sense of dread. "birds shiver in covert trees" I love it. Good to see you writing - well done! Hugs ~ John
