To a Raven

Fearless Raven, soaring in the rich, dark chasm— that world of shadows, echoes, cliffs and crags chaotic, the void of subtle stirrings in a quintessential midnight— Make some room for me on your old, straight wings. I, too, need to sense lightning piercing stardust, galvanizing mountains, stoking distant thunder. Let me catch a breath of your pure, primeval air, exotic and unshackling latent, raw, unbounded.

Dear Carol. I stumbled onto your poem To a raven, and felt it fitted well a small series of photograps I posted on Instagram, of course with reference to you. Do you by any chance have an instagram name that I can refer to? Regards, Ingimundur See https://www.instagram.com/p/BvxS7vyg0wU/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
