Bird 12 - The Black Spots In The Blue Skies

Am I not a ravenous raven?
Crowing my heart out!
Famished and depraved,
Of love and compassion
From the humankind!

I am black - pitch black,
As dark as the night,
I can boast of no colours,
My feathers are thick and glossy,
Nothing to rave about!

O Yeah! I am just a black crow,
Cawing and cawing,
Ugly and uncouth
With no style or fashion sense,
No glitter - no glamour!

But listen folks! When I fly
I do not fly alone like a lone ranger,
I fly with my kith and kin,
A flock in unison
Together and jovial!

I have a voracious appetite,
And may gobble food like a glutton,
But shall I share a secret?
I carry around virtuous souls,
On a ride in the blue skies!

I have a voracious appetite, And may gobble food like a glutton, But shall I share a secret? I carry around virtuous souls, On a ride in the blue skies! .......touching expression with a nice theme. Beautifully painted. A brilliant poem on bird especially on crow expressing brotherhood has been astutely presented.10
All the creatures have a beauty, crows are famous for their brotherhood.
The raven is a beautiful bird with simple look.10p
Black is new blue hahaha You're such a nature lover :)
A nature lover sees beauty in all creatures, but it takes a great poet to paint the beauty for others to see. If ravens can read, they will sing their praises for you. Thanks Geeta
