Trace of Crow Snow

Trace of Crow Snow

wings finger the snow
like hands pushing up from a bed–
who cares what he said/she said (you/me)
in the face of crow tracks
the bones of flight, nighted,

oh caw, here’s
my response–oh,



drafty poem for Fireblossom (Shay’s) prompt on Real Toads to write something relating to crows. Pic is mine, all rights reserved.

    Oh, my. This is WONDERFUL. From title (fantastic) to “bones of flight, nighted” and that ending. Awesome.

  2. So wonderful – as are the wingprints in the snow.

  3. Wonderful poem. Unique approach and photo.

    I enjoyed this, K. Ready to fly again. I pity those creatures of Nature in the cold and snow. The weaker due to survival of the fittest often fall prey to larger animals.

    FYI — I was wondering if, in the line, “the bones of flight, nighted,” you had meant to pen “knighted”?
