Two Crows

I ran into the woods today

as fast and as far…as my ghosts would fly.

Neither stone wall or vacant distant well…

Nor, earthen strewn leaf or Canterbury Tale…

None, I scream, none, but you would do.

There were no roaming voices

There had been no logging trail blazed

And, yet, the screams became my craze.

 

‘What is there?  Who is there?’

As, I draw near to the fleeting footsteps.

With a twilight sweat careening my sight.

My screams are my fight.

Alas, you would not do.

Three crows circling and two gun shots…later.

I digress, you would not do.

You would not do…

what I would like to see done to you.

A coven of crows flying together is often regarded as bad luck.  Many Native Americans believe it is also a sign that death from within the family circle is coming soon.

The crow is also watchful of intruders and predators. The sound it makes is characteristic of a loud, strident bird noise that can warn the other members of it clan over great distance. When you see your crow spirit animal, be on the watch.
