(…hats off to Bob Dylan and his song, Blowin’ in the Wind…)
How many revisions must I walk down searching for the metaphorical crown? How many seas must a smart-ass seagull skim, before basking in the tide’s baneful brim? Yes ‘n’ how many times must a squirrel scream before I FINALLY get what it means? The smell of flowers is drifting in the wind, disrupting the monologue in my mind…
When a Crow speaks, it’s a definite page;
Calling all sensitives – time to engage!
The Crow [plisky] untied his shoelaces.
Is this because he doesn’t know faces?
When a Hawk’s near, the Crows KERFUFFLE!
“Get Away,” they scream feathers a-ruffle.
Long lush green grass, dark feathers akimbo;
Two lustrous Crows dance a jammy limbo.
Big Crow lands on my porch rail, silently
And stares at me — quietly — intently.
