POST 170: Crow, Island, mystery, Maine, South Carolina

by Carol Bass


The crow hopping across the road
as I drive down the green island this evening
His body moving first forward then backward
as he skips

missing the car by inches
knowing I won’t run over him

having no arms
and using muscles to propel
your body forward
gut strength
gut courage

isn’t this what we all do in a way
use this mysterious force to
go to the next place?
