Raven Talk

Image titled Raven Talk by Vivian C. Olsen

Very few birds want
to speak as we do. Raven
does. I tried to teach
that saucy fellow
and he eyed me with his black
glass orbs as if mad
with a need to strike
so I know I am wrong - not
built to instruct him
though I remain sure
he wants to speak truth to me
and perhaps to you.

  1. Well now, I'm not sure about this. The collective noun for a group of ravens is either a 'conspiracy', or an 'unkindness'. In either case truth could be a bit of a dodgy issue. :)

    1. Yes I know. :) A feathered person so well versed in the creative truth does indeed sound like a consummate liar. Yet this truth could be the best of truths as well. Yer pays with yer heart and buys yer way in.

  2. That first image sounds like a conversation I'd rather not listen to?! :)

    1. I stand in awe. You have gotten that image to make noises. :D


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
