Black Bird Rising (The Raven’s Call)

Credit

I’ve discovered a dark bird-
he holds me in his gaze
and I am slowly
drawn into his strong, 
silent ways
he flies, is free 
has flown through time
with him I long to flee
alas is this blackest of birds
my ultimate destiny?
a keeper of secrets
 I’ve heard of him
I feel his presence
grow within
connected with 
this bird of prey
with my kin
I’ll fly away
no corpses nor 
rotting carcasses
for him
but wisdom rises 
beneath his wings
What does he bring?
Deep hidden things,
mysteries, 
mystical sight,
will his majestic darkness
bring new light?
I hear him now,
hear his cry
he’s told me things to come-
past, present, future
he knows whence I come from
where he leads
 I must go,
from where I am now
I don’t know-
the journey
begins
my soul flies solo…
the wings of dawn draw nigh,
off, be gone now, 
 fly.

    This is quite magical. He sounds like a worthy guide, and it is wonderful really to think of one's soul flying solo following the bird's lead.
