Wings heavy with the shadows of night,

a whisper rising like smoke from it’s breath.

Words lost to the wind in the leaves.

Has the raven called for me?

Author’s Note:

A short inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s ‘The Raven.’

Just like many other spooky kids there is a special peice of my heart reserved for dear old Poe. I’ve always loved and admired the way he writes. His poetry, his fiction, the general mystery that is Poe.
