BLACK CROWS OF WINTER

BLACK CROWS OF WINTER

A Poem by Julie Dant

Gnarled black walnut trees
Bared of leaves
Stark against metal sky

Black crows of winter
Descend in low
Circular lazy flight

Dark squirrel’s nests
Silhouetted in forked
Wooden branches

Vee of Canadian geese
Wings beating frigid air
Wish I could follow…

Black crows of winter
Seem to fill the sky
Obliteration of the sun

Further darkening the
Deep recesses and
Turnings of my mind.

Thoroughly embedding
Themselves into my
mental migration.

Black Crows of winter
My brethren for now…
I pray…JUST for now.
