Sight of The Raven


We know what rain feels like: Tears from heaven.
Shed by Him, for us, His blessing – vernal.
Earth nourished, yet we feed like the raven,
eyes keen on waste, and discarded kernel.


Feet are for walking, arms hold, hands caress.
Body parts! Eyes to see, ears to hear, mouth
to speak, brain, think! Cipher logic, no less.
Yet we travel north seeking to find south.


We know our body parts. How to find them,
define, use them. But what is that within?
Seldom touched is the mind, the hidden gem,
unseen, untapped, below layers of skin.


Mind: precious, direct link to the Heavens,
yet we seek our food, as does the raven?


Carmen Ruggero @2004 & 2005 &2006
