Poem: Crow on the Lamppost by Mark Tulin 

Crow resting on the lamppost

While there’s still some daylight

Knowing that all too soon

He’ll fly effortlessly low and smooth

Down the winding seaside road

Floating easily into the salty air

Through lush foliage and palm trees

Past beach houses and tourists on bicycles

Over creaky boardwalks and sand dunes

Near little children with buckets and shovels

To the edge of the sea.


I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.
