Raven’s Rain #microfiction #magpietales


I looked in her eyes.

So much sorrow

so  much pain.

As tears began to fall

they were more turbulent

than the rain

what can I do

to remove this blight?

for she is my everything

my true love’s delight!

Yet what can a mere

black raven do?

I  am small

meaningless

insignificant too!

Then I heard

the wind’s roar through the rain.

I will turn her black as the night

give her feathers

remove this bane.

We will never caress

nor will we embrace.

But of her tears

there is no memory nor trace.

thanks to Magpie Tales for a wonderful challenge to put this picture to words and to the beautiful Tess Kincaid who makes this happen

  1. Wow Leslie,
    This poem is just beautiful. Your words weave a great picture and a dilemma on the ravens part that I am sure our furry and feathery companions face as well. I really enjoyed this poem and have to say it is my favorite one that you have written. Great job!
