Though if you look most closely, there are a multitutes of hues, and so it seems too it's inate knowing, I raised a little Raven last year, a most loving creature, and surely most wise and clever, it comes every day to remind us of our frienship, a very sociable bird, it brings its family along, we talk for a while, a treat and then it's off and away. I yell after him, see you Jakob, and there is a loud refrain of Caw, caw, caw.


No dazzling colour do I wear,
But solid earthly black,
It loud and boldly does declare,
Hello my name is Jack,
Jack the ripper is my name,
Or Jacob if you wish,
Millions of us all the same,
Life leftovers, is our dish,
A friend I am in life and death,
We value both, as much as one,
We live to clean up all the mess,
Whence all you’ve left and gone,
The wisdom that we garnered thus,
From the world of all departed,
We need not make of death a fuss,
Or to be broken hearted,
A million memories are gathered thus,
In the marrow of the bone,
There really is no memory loss,
In us they are at home,
So in every Bird and Bee you see,
You see, the universe departed, and reborn,
You’ll see your loved ones, you and me,
For they were never from us torn,
There is no Peter at the gate,
But just a transformation,
You will be everybody’s fate,
Again, once more, everyone’s relation,
I would if I were you this living day,
Remember elders and your kin,
Listen more intently, of what they try to say,
Whatever life, they might be in.©16/04/2012

I do love this. What a tender and encompassing way to express our connectivity. I enjoy your respect for the Raven and other beings. You have chosen a profound combination of language to honor the nature of this writing. There was a Netflix streaming documentary about the intellegence of crows that will have me not ever looking at them the same. There is so much about wildlife we are only beginning to Pay Attention To. I love that you have and are and share your position about us...and all of us together. You have given the Raven great due. Thanks. ~~ Diana

I love to gather with children and the elderly for they tell me wondrous things. I also love to observe birds and animals go about their daily activities. We can learn a lot from life. I believe the Zoroastrians and Native American peoples got it right. All we have to do when our loved ones minds have left their bodies, is to place those bodies in a high place where the birds will pick their bones. And then, later, when listening to the birds, we may hear their call from many generations passed.

wisdom comes to those who listen Jasmin and you exemplify every quality of an intense listener - black, since it is the presence of all colour can be dazzling and alluring to the imaginative - your friend chose wisely to be befriended by you - he could not have done better - I wish love and peace my dear friend - Jon Michael

Like you, I always try to listen to what other life forms have to say - I think many of them have far more wisdom than many like to admit. I only wish that there were far more of us around today still listening. And I too, love ravens and crows. I have three now that visit me just about every day (they like peanuts).
