On Raven’s Wings

On Raven’s Wings

A Poem by McEltic

On Raven's wings we hover
between the realm of earth, and others
Treasured memories
in life entrusted
Your concern... our facts may arrive mistrusted?
~
Not ever
~
We are Raven
We watch... we listen... we know... we fly
and if you should need to ask
We never lie
~~~

I've always related to ravens as the native american totem for knowing, speaking up, & insight . . . or some call them messengers, sometimes between life & afterlife . . . these are all the things your poem conjures in my thought flight. I believe there are realms we can't touch without some messenger to join us on our journey . . . why not invite raven? Love the barely-there whimsical quality of your poem, which reflects the way such knowingness can flit around in a ephemeral way (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Ravens, associated with prophecy and insight. Some think they are a bad omen. They are an intelligent bird, and I respect them. They are mysterious and somewhat intimidating in appearance. If they cross my path, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed. Too closely linked to death for my liking and old wives tales. Good read, you took me on quite a journey.
