A glimmer of sky
is reflected in its eye,
echoing with the raw
and ragged corvine caw,
reminding us of misty dawns,
morning breath of autumn yawns
and branches bristling with jet feathers
as the harbingers of winter flock together.

Margaret is our host this Thursday and she tells us that her friend, the artist, Toril Fisher, has once again generously offered to allow us to use her paintings for inspiration.
Whether we can place ourselves in the paintings or our poems take on the qualities of the animals in them, Margaret asks us to interpret the images with a new piece of poetry written in any way we choose.
