Crow Visitors


April 23, 2011 "You will find poetry nowhere unless you bring some of it with you." Joseph Joubert


A pair of crows-
visitors each morning-
startle when we open the door,
fly away in tandem,
a steadfast couple.
They soon return to gather
the breakfast peanuts
and settle at the birdbath.
Each holds a peanut,
dipping, cracking.
During the munching, their
husky calls reach our own breakfast table.
Here are my husband and myself,
reading news bits to each other,
chomping on the granola and blueberries.

  1. Our crows outside are busily eating everything in sight also. And the two "old crows" sit inside watching out the window and eating here, too!
    You make a nice picture of the two worlds of steadfast couples!
