Gleanings - a Poetry Friday post

Gleanings

In the new-fallow field
where husks and stalks lie,
a murder of crows hunches,
seeking sustenance from chaff.

The above is an original poem of mine that first appeared in Chanterelle's Notebook.

Such a vivid image! I used to find crows menacing, but now I appreciate them for how smart they are. Ravens, on the other hand, are a different story . . .

Ravens are also extremely intelligent. And can sound like humans, as it turns out. (Baritones, primarily.) Thanks for stopping by!

I don't doubt their intelligence -- but they still scare me.

Thanks - it was published a few years ago, but still!
