|I am a firm believer in visions. I have had many things such as this happen to me. Was this vision real?
It sounds more like a reality to me, than a vision. I am not normal.
Blessings on you!

|Lovely poem Regis...oooohhhh and so mysterious. One thing interesting about looking to the west. Well, as you go further and further west, you eventually arrive in the east. And this poem is very eastern metaphysical. ~ Sara|

A thought provoking and well crafted write Regis. There are many myths surrounding the crow, my late gran used to tell us they were the harbingers of bad news. I personally find them extremely fascinating and highly intelligent. Below is an excerpt which I found rather interesting.
"In Mythology and folklore crows and especially ravens often feature as portents or harbingers of doom or death. In mythology and folklore as a whole, crows tend to be symbolic more of the spiritual aspect of death, or the transition of the spirit into the afterlife. Amongst the Neopagans crows are often thought to be highly psychic and are associated with the element of ether or spirit."
Thanks for sharing.

|It is uncanny the power that these amazing "trompe de l'oeil" can have... especially if they are imbued with "meaning"... which this must have been to have made such a mark on you, Regis. This may be the beginning to a fascinating piece of fiction, or it may be the first encounter of a mysterious journey yet to be unfurled, but you create wonderful mystique and atmosphere here and draw the reader into the surreal nature of it all brilliantly. Bless you and thank you. Kate xx|

|What a splendid story would unfold from this fascinating Vision, dear Regis! To begin... maybe with a line written with a feather left by the black crow, before it disappeared.
You are a very gifted writer with a very kind heart.
Lots of Love&Light*

|Mysterious and intriguing...you describe an omen that lures the reader into fantasies.
Love the picture of the bird...very moody.

|A VISION that definitely was: enigmatic, absorbing, and strangely beautiful.
|Reviewed by Kathy Kubik
|I love the sense of mystery here, transformation and secrecy. I think the poem could shine even more if you eliminate some of the "I"s to tighten. Great work!
|Reviewed by A. Santo
|You have written a very intriguing poem Mr. Regis
Crows are animals that are known for carrying many different types of wisdoms in creation. Here are just a few that I have read and found to be very interesting.
Guardians of the place before existence,
Ability to move in space and time,
Carrier of souls from darkness into light,
Working without fear in darkness,
Guidance while working in shadow,
Moves freely in the void,
Understands all things related to ethics,
I think we "humans" could learn a thing or two about our beautiful friends of creation.

|Fascinating piece, Regis - and you are a lucky man; I usually only see old prospectors, pioneers, and ancient warriors - I've never seen a female ghost. She may truly have a special message for you.|

|Good description of the fleeting images of things we sometimes think we see--or maybe actually do see--who knows? I remember one time being in Santa Fe on the plaza on a rainy evening and seeing a Spanish Lady in a black shawl walk into one of the houses. Later on, I swear she walked throgh my dining room in Farmington, and when she left, I wanted to write again, after a 20 year silence.|
|Reviewed by Retta (Reindeer) Mckenzie
|A beautiful and haunting poem with such powerful symbolism, this one really got to me today, outstanding Regis.
|Reviewed by Susan de Vegter
|In the spirit world a visit from a Crow is a spiritual visit from someone in the past.
I have to wonder now who the woman was. You need to look into this since you're now a conduit.
You're a lucky choice so I'm told. When a crow comes to you then you are to be a messenger.
Great poem. See how your words motivated my thinking.

|Perhaps a shadow that is now gone? This haunts, Reg. If this was a novel and this was the opening paragraph, I wouldn't stop until I learned of its meaning. Grips like good writing should!

|A vision indeed, Regis! Reminds me of Flagg and the raven/crow in Stephen King's "The Stand." Haunting imagery and very vivid. Has shades of a reincarnate poem. Very Cool!
