Casual Crows

Crows, gotta love ’em!

Two meet, converse

Right next to busy

Highway at rush-hour

In late afternoon when

Forecast calls for SNOW

Seemingly mindless of

Precarious circumstances

Sending humans into fret…

Casual demeanor, no cares

Consume, interrupt their

Peace, they’re a positive lot

Likely wishing each other

Best of New Year’s offerings

While I—(clenched, waiting

For crosswalk’s signal

Allowing safe passage

Through traffic, hoping I’ve

Bought enough groceries

To outlast whatever winter

Weather’s coming my way)—

Consider calm onyx feathers

Envy birds’ simple life, apparent

Trust that God will watch over

And provide for them each day.

  1. Very cleaver poetry about these interesting birds which are a territorial lot. You are so right I am a fretted person although getting better as my husband is always giving me this bible verse “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
    ‭‭Mathew Chapter six verse 27. Beautiful poem. Love 💕 Joni
