The wisdom of crows

A poem

As I hiked through the woods on a winter day
I asked a crow to walk alongside me
To share with me the secrets of life
I turned and looked at him. Could it be that simple?
I stood still. Yes, yes, that was it!
I fell to my knees awash in new found understanding

I stared into his black soul-full eyes
He cocked his head to the side
I swore I saw the edge of his beak rise in a smirk
He took to flight and I continued my hike
I felt renewed
The knowledge of life flowing through my mind
Crows are smart
Crows are sneaky
And humans are fools for believing what they say
