Raven Watch

Raven Watch

Praying high
Bowed on ancient tower
Head to rising sun
Listening to old spirits
As he meditates.

Raven with head bowed
Deep in his own thoughts
Unaware of the others
Preening sleek feathers
As the sun rises.

Raven stays
Safe on the wall of stones
Laid by ancient hands
High above the mesa floor
Gathering energy to soar.

Rise on the wind
Soar uncaring
Of the world below
Raven fly over the red cliffs.

When mother said I could not write
