About Nine Crows

Poem By Raj Arumugam

a group flies
of about nine crows
against the bright sky;
and each lands on a tall gum tree
each
purposeful
each
perfect

Comments about About Nine Crows

I love crows; there are so many stories and myths about them. It seems if they didn't exist someone would have had to invent them, doesn't it? This is an elegant piece, my friend.(and I would like to see a gum tree some day!) .
Nature and dark birds in flight on a bright sky, the imagery is beautiful. Thank you for sharing :)
interesting craft about the crows in purposeful picturesque............Thanks!
if these birds would find food in the sky...i wonder if they would ever come down..love birds as a subject for poem...please read my 'a silent sight' if you haven't...true sir their perfection is amazing

we love words
and unwilling to exert, to see for ourselves
we grasp at revelations, at what others can tell us;
and we suckle at concepts and ideas

Socrates dies, sleep easy, dear Athens;
Socrates is found guilty
of asking questions,
one too many;

from deep sleep one wakes
to a fleeting moment:
glimpses of the room
the window at which the darkness hangs

Let There Be Peace

let there be peace in each heart
a peace that is independent of place and circumstance;
a quiet that is not reliant on ideas or dogma
or religion or club or leaning on another;
