Persistent Bird


raven crowing atop a golf cart
looking all over our lunch bag
when she tried to pry one of them
i throw a cone just to scare 'em
she didn't back out must be hunger
but her beak not strong for offer

so many of them fills tree tops
can't find food nor outlying crops
sometimes carcass scattered on ground
maybe from malnourished or end of time
summer takes it's toll to everything
even turtles scared of daily sunbathing

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
