counting crows

The earth is quiet

As silent as a tomb

 

Crows gaggle on a wire

Against a harvest moon

 

It seems a thin place

Where I am standing

 

As if time…were standing still

 

I count the crows descending

They are bound to get there fill

 

The dawn will

Chase the darkness

 

The scarecrow fails

To shoo the crows

 

There is sweetness

 In this dreaming

 

Only the… created creator knows

 

In the soul is found contentment

When busy counting crows

    There's reason to believe maybe this year will be better than the last.

    Like that positive thought that dawn will chase the darkness - how true WW. - -- a sweet dream of a read.

      WW,

      I like the scene you set & the atmosphere behind the words.

      My only comment is the earth being as silent as a tomb yet we have gaggling crows; so not so silent.

      Pushing that to one side, I enjoyed very much,

      Unsub

        Thank you for the read, my use of a gaggle is meant to mean a flock of crows not flying ?
        any way I do appreciate the read and comment ww
