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,
take-off

oh caw, here’s
my response–oh,
awe–

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

    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”?
