They will tell you
the best way to see through
darkness is to keep moving.

One step at a time.
Defeat the beast—for eyes
to focus through strobe black

up the spine of an elated
concience, shun shadow
and pluck the feather

of a crow which seeks forgivness.
But residue resides, an offering
able to burn white with light,

hotter and brighter
than eyes can withstand.
And there will be a choice,

sound of caws from altar rafters,
demanding confession,
or redemption—

a spiral that will never be
forgiven nor whispired—seven crows
a secret that never will be told.

Out of the three wonderful poems you've just posted this is my favorit and I'm going to have to study it for I know I'm missing something and like any wonderful treasure hunt I need to seek the map and dig. Unless the map maker is willing to share the short cut smile I'll be back on this one I think I need some coffee. Earlybird

Balanced (My goal)

There is symmetry
In self-reflection
Life exemplified
Grace personified

There are many variations of the mythology of crows. Research and take what you will. smile
