The Magic Crow

Black as night

Judgement in his screech

Over my head in flight

Appearing just out of reach

Taunting me, never out of sight

Mistakes were made

Regrets will be held

Love turned to hate

Hate delivers me to hell

The magic crow appears to announce my fate

The Magic Crow

-

It was on a damp and cold night

Of so long ago,

Amidst the weeping branches; contrite, so-and-so,

Where my mind wandered, awash in the guilt-full oceans-


Of memories that once took me away,

To sandier shores and worlds created of our own.

Alas, it is only true that they hide by day

And come out to reap what darkest of seeds sewn.


Amidst the branches that scrape and claw

At the bleakness of a night so moonless,

That I first heard the flapping, the scratching and caw

Of that creature, that hated fowl of superstitious nonsense.


It alighted on a branch that draped across forest trail

And affixed me with the atrocious…

2. The Magic Crow


Black

Dark

Harbinger of woe.

Flight

Squawk

Tell me, irksome crow?

Pest

Jest

On and on you go.

What?

Wait?

Offended. You seem so.

Peer

Deep

A reflection of my soul.

Radiant

Gradient

In the sun I glow.

Acceptance

Deliverance

Thank you, Magic Crow!

The Magic Crow


That bird that marks darkness

Sounds like a dying duck

Looms decay and murk


You and your cohorts

Circling around death

Congregating like a funeral barricade


But who am I to judge?


Maybe there's some light in the Dark

Maybe there's some

Magic in the Crow

In all of this?
