Life Before Death

I ask the crow to sing a happy tune
and flash it’s pretty feathers;
To fly in the aroma of the flowers
watered and tended to by us.
I ask the crow to sing a joyful song
despite it’s cries;
To disregard his image of sorrow,
and instead rejoice in the garden
we rise in the middle of the desert.
I tell the crow of life’s limits
and ask him to celebrate with us
the promise of tomorrow
in the color
of all we’ve grown tall;
To relax
in a beauty too great to overlook.

  1. I love this, I love this, I love this.
    Okay, so… I love every analogy because obviously, I’m a sucker for anything with flowers, it’s just so pretty to me. The analogy about the crow and the garden is just wow, so perfect, such a gorgeous piece, very simplistic yet so so meaningful, just beautiful ❤
