Crow's Ambush

published in Inklinks Anthology

You living in a small room

Keeping things in the rack

Under your pillow

In your suitcase

In safe havens

In your table

In kitchen

But I

Living in a big paradise

I can keep in trash cans

On mountain top

On tree branches

Windows of multi storey buildings

Inside burrows

Wherever I wish under the sky

Its not easy to search back

Using Find option

I have to fly over miles

I have to remember my nest

And you fools

Calling me forgetfull crow

Caw! Caw! Caw!

Goodness! That has a bit of everything in it!

Remember my nest - great line, Distance always puts a fence between us and our emotions. Very interesting

Mary said...

Amazing poem. It definitely gives me a deeper appreciation for the crow. Welcome to Poetry Pantry. Hope we will continue to see you here each week.

how foolish and arrogant we are to judge the innate wisdom of other beings.

The line ... I must remember my nest... I found that very powerful and resonating... we must remember our nests. Great poem.

This reminds me of the movie 'Inception'. And what a creative way to express the oh-so-wide expanse of one's imagination. I loved it. Beautiful poem.

What a terrific perspective. I appreciate the way you show us the pluses and minuses of each lifestyle.
