A poetic journey through my mind


The seventh crow banks and wheels,
circling over the silicon sea,
eyeless he sees, and earless hears,
but never a word says he.

Of blackest midnight shape his wings,
make every quill a fountain pen,
and trace in glowing synmetry
knowledge beyond mortal ken.

Far below and all around,
bright circuitry and fields of wire,
contain the mystery within,
spelled out in runes of glowing fire.

Circling over the silicon sea,
the seventh crow keeps watch below,
faithfully he guards his charge,
the secret none shall ever know.

    make every quill a fountain pen,

    a perfect description of poetry
    also gives (to me) reflection of
    Revelations and the seven.

  2. Wonderful, fantastic, eternally true of mysteries carried by winged friends always above us! I am reblogging, okay? This speaks so well of the Old Crow in my critterly journey series.

  3. Reblogged this on granbee and commented:
    Dear, dear followers: see if YOU can determine the mystery carried by this “seventh” crow and how he is akin to Old Crow with our critterly friends on our own journy.

  4. This a beautiful poem, it is as granbee says linked to her Critters journey. It also stands alone as a beautiful piece of work. It is full of atmosphere, it is dark and beautiful Thank you for sharing xx

    beautiful but eerie; the number seven of course carries many connotations. I like crow poems. I’ve written a few myself. thanks for subscribing to my blog
