Hare and Crow

“The Hare and the Crow” by Amanda Clark

Moonlight backgrounds
last night of Autumn,
in which bare, purple
trees, and climbing
leaves appear. Spacey-
lacy flowers bend
to wind’s whim. Some
birds have begun
migration. The crow
remains at his station,
watching a nervous
hare hurry off. Who
will remain at dawn?

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
