Darkness…

Crow

The shadow cast 
on this moonless night
by ravens black
it’s wings spread wide in the expanse
as it glides silent towards shimmering curtains
draped over northern hills.

Oh this night I will wear tucked under my chin
with it’s seam held tight to my chest with clenched fists
and wait for the first rays of this, another day
to warm the weave of it’s black chill.

    Wonderful work Grant…. can feel the darkness within your words:
    “…with it’s seam held tight to my chest with clenched fists
    and wait for the first rays of this, another day
    to warm the weave of it’s black chill.”
    Quite powerful indeed! ~ 🙂 RL
