Raven Moon


Raven Moon

Waiting in the rain
For the emergence of the light
Witch and familiar
Casting a spell.

Witch and Raven
Trading places in the rainy night
Gown for Feathers
Wings for legs.

Dancing on the shore
Wet from the rain
Emerged the full moon
Illuminating the soaring bird.

Raven and witch wait
For the spell to be ended
Lifted with the parting
Of clouds for the raven moon.

  1. Yes, Jacqui, the image of the witch was hard to evade with this one. I like the idea of metamorphosis in your poem and the black bird/black gown parallelism is good.
