Raven

My daughter and I in Alaska

visit a raven sanctuary

many ravens are protected inside

a huge cage and outside

are many more ravens

who are not caged

free to come and go

to find their own food

 

A metaphor of raven

that day as mother and daughter

stood seeking a wildlife experience

in Anchorage after the snow had melted

watching ravens

their caw and sharp deep throated

guttural sound

which one are you

Raven
