As Above, So Below

Black raven, ink saturated

startles the monkey mind

his raucous call on repeat

a totem from the wild, concrete bound.

Too large, he perches on an abandoned crow’s nest

cradled in winter bare branches,

his curious Corvus language falling on deaf ears,

except mine.

I walk towards him in wonder,

and message received, he flies off – 

nature’s clarion call having shattered

the distortion we call world.

It's time to head home! "Bright Nights" is finished for another year - this actual spot is where I often enjoy a delicious hot chocolate and hear the call of the ravens (Stanley Park).

    • Thank you, Huguette! This poem was indeed born after seeing this beautiful raven right here in our neighbourhood so far from the forest and as soon as I approached him, he flew off. He seemed very determined to pass on some kind of message!
