Thursday photo prompt – Wings #writephoto

Sue’s photoprompt this week opens up many ideas in my mind.
Often on our walks in the woods in Lincolnshire we would see scenes like this,
and sometimes be deafened by the noise!
Click on the link above for details on how to join in.
At dawn’s first light
Crows take flight,
Rising high,
I watch them fly.
Looping the loop,
They dive and swoop.
Swarming away,
Silence rules by day.
Then as twilight falls,
Their deafening call
Echoes deeper and higher
As they group on the wire.
There is nought to fear,
Just birds live here.
A sight to please,
They roost in the trees.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    That about sums them up… I love seeing them like this 🙂

    • They are fascinating creatures. Ugly perhaps, but fascinating.

      • Sue Vincent says:

        I don’t find them unattractive… they have sure awareness in their eyes.

      • Hubby had to depatch one which was being eaten alive by magpies. The eyes were full of pain and practically pleading. He will never let any animal suffer if he can help it.

      • Sue Vincent says:

        That must have been awful…

      • It’s a reason we don’t like magpies as we’ve witnessed their cruelty and greed, even scaring them off our bird houses in Tit Terrace as they tried to get inside to get the young bluetit chicks. This incident made me see crows in a different light (though I still think the big carrion crows are ugly), and we even got close up to a crow chick sitting, tired, on a wall shortly after arrival here. It was so cute!

        Magpies… they are aggressive birds on the whole. Still beautiful though.

    Nice rhyme. I don’t see many crows where I live, but I hear they are very intelligent.
