The elderly crow.
- C. J. Black
Sitting here in the morning sunlight
Wagtails sipping from the dog’s water bowl
Swallows encouraging their young to leave the nest
Silvery cobwebs, with spiders working tirelessly
Birds alighting on walls feeding on “ants” not visible to the naked eye
Vapour trails, like six lane highways in the sky left by big silver birds
Listening to the chatter of two magpies on a nearby roof
An elderly looking crow balancing on a wire – vulture like.
A gentle breeze. The beauty of nature.
The dog moving in and out of shade and sunshine
His rest disturbed by a passer-by walking her dog
They forecast rain but at 10:00 this Friday morning – bright sunshine, cloudless sky
A busy bee seeking its next victim perhaps?
A fly just got entangled in a large spider web!!
