A Crow's Dream

Corvus capensis (Cape crow, Black crow) - W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm 
- 12" x 8" Unframed 

To build a nest 
with twigs unrest 
lying here, lying there 
to lay some eggs 
and breed some chicks 
to teach them how to click 
to swing in the branches 
and spy through the arches 
to bathe in the poodles 
all cool bathed rooms 
in search of green woods 
fully loaded with ripened fruits 
all life did I stood 
for life and livelihood 
my nest my homes 
one for one crow-hus 
same straws yet new nest 
next time I breast 
sweet life, luxurious breeze 
small problems everything within reach 
friends of mine 
plenty and more 
we dine together 
that is where we gather 
we dirt eat to purify the earth 
our souls divine burn the heaps holy 
Yet I dream of cages untold 
where parrots feed on milk and grains 
mellow fruits are ripe and ready 
anytime to taste without buddies.
