No Crows

no crows s

What message
this black performance?
retrograde
running through
the clash of silence unbound,
stark with intention.

Misplaced, those
promises—passwords
forgotten,
erased and
unfigured—transparent streaks
against darking skies.

Jane Dougherty’s raven poem reminded me to visit the Secret Keeper’s words this week, and also reminded me of the various crows demanding my attention as I go about my life.  Sounds of silence (for dVerse).

Art inspired by Joan, Joni, and Vincent.

    The crows seem to be very vocal at present. They are constantly cawing here. Yesterday I listened to a meditation recorded a couple of days ago in Hawaii and could hear crows in the background.

    Crows harassing a rabbit. Silence is often broken or accentuated by the cawing of crows. I hadn’t thought about it before, but battlefields, funerals, a ploughed field, all silent until the crows turn up. You can’t get quieter than a rabbit either.

    The other day, the crows were going on and on. I couldn’t tell what they were shouting about. It’s often a warning about a nearby hawk. Crows are fascinating. They will get your attention–good luck with yours.

    We need to be careful with black… if you constantly look at shadows you will never see the light.

    I like how you pulled all those prompts/ideas together…”against darkening skies.”

    I’ve been camping this week, and my morning silence was interrupted each day by the same crow visiting our camp sight. I think he was watching over us. Beautiful and words today Kerfe.

    I get an ominous feeling with the phrase “stark with intention”. It makes the unknown message stand out.

    I love your poem that uses art to illustrate the sounds of silence. The piece reminds me of a Rorschach test of inkblots that speak to people as they view it. Well done.
