The flight of the raven

                    PAD Day 26

Quoted from Robert Brewer’s PAD blog:

“For today’s prompt, write an animal poem.
The poem can be about an animal, just reference an animal,
or well, however you’d like to handle writing an animal poem.”

“The flight of the raven”

All I was thinking was that the breeze
blew just for me that day, that season, that year,
to carry me like a storm
driven upon strong winds
into the sun during this
drivel of time.

What I touched withered.
What I carried on the gale winds
faltered, what I wished remained just a wish.

My desire was to see an unfurrowed
brow in my mirror, one that would replace my fear
but every time I washed my
hands, I washed again, and then again
during this drivel of time

where I was sent wafting with the ravens
our flights stagnant against the
torrents of breath
and time.

  1. I really like these lines:
    “What I touched withered.
    What I carried on the gale winds
    faltered, what I wished remained just a wish.”
    There is something awful, but at the same time beautiful portrayed.

Speak to me of thoughts unspoken.
