Ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the birds of the air, and they shall tell thee...Job 12: 7

The crow sits freely
In the cottonwood tree...
Without pen and ink
It has time to think.
He gives insight
Just being a bird,
Singing his song
Loud and strong,
To be heard
In the words
That he can't write.
Poetry by me, AJP

    Thank you for the comments...I shot a similar picture that same day of this crow where its head was turned to the side...the original picture showed a pale blue sky but I converted it into black and white with high contrast which gives it this abstract look.

    Your poem expresses so beautifully the feeling of this lone crow going about his day.. inkless, indeed. I love the stark silhouette effect here, it is perfect for the theme!!
