I was trying to find something else, but I came upon an older post with a poem called “Crow Lessons”. It didn’t sound right. And it wasn’t.
Sometimes–most times–you have to trust the body. When there is a twinge or a tiny jerk in the abdomen … maybe your body is telling you something. Pay attention.
This time I did. And I am glad that I did. Because that version of the poem was clipped, there were part lines missing. It was a mess.
So here is a better version…Let me know if it still needs improving.
Clickety, clack, talking back
Crow sits, watching attentively
I sit, attending watchfully
He— Resting in old tree
Me—Sipping cuppa tea
Lone souls he and me
