Raven

Sleek shroud of jet plumage, 

a swooping satin cape.

Mystical harbinger

of death and trickery.

.

Statuesque and feathered,

with beady magic eyes.

Onyx stones observing,

cagey pecking at fate.

.

Silky ebony wings

casting morbid shadows.

Avian magician

necromantic in flight

.

Feathering illusions,

raven curtains swishing.

The cawing of death knolls

in ominous demise.

.
