speciation

lone crow's a raven
flock of ravens simply crows:
cladistics gone wry

Hi Sandy,

I didn't notice the raven in that pretty tree photo until I read your poem. Lovely back to nature, sparse, but powerful, take on this prompt. My eyes keep roving back to it and especially "raven medicine."
