Birdspeak

Bright eye—what do you see?

Is it an opportunity for mischief,
or curiosity that draws that
shining black pebble over
this way?

When you leave
your rocky perch, what
will you tell your companions
in the low chuckle
of your raven-speak?

Will they ask how your
feathers came to be
so ruffled, what you
discovered, or whether you
filled your stomach today?
