a new shade of blue

on a day like today
a bluewinged raven
flew above my head
floated in cirkles for a while
just to make a wild landing
dimming my sight

on a day like today
I sat with amazement in my hand
sparkling with sadness
I admired it for a while
even though it bit me

on a day like today
I wished loudly
that tomorrow
could come
to chop off this ravens head
and make a new shade of its wingcolour
to paste on the painting
of you

chasingtheday The PoetBay support member heart!
very plath like, was my first thought with the raven within the poem. a good piece - flowing smoothly and i liked the ending with the painting.

i like this poem, i read alot of wisdom in it's words

Hi, nice to read you in English, as well!
The raven, again: I LOVE it!
But I still think it reads better with "dimming my sight" instead of "and dim my sight"...
My, my! You are blood red here, are you not?
