Poem: Crown of Violet-Blue by Mark Tulin

Crow making his way in foggy skies

Ruffled dull black feathers

Crown of violet-blue in the morning chill

A long quill falls

Over a jagged mountaintop

Where a hawk lies in wait

A few miles from the sea

A thick marine layer covers the sun

His little-pointed head

And his rapidly beating heart

Disappear in the ocean mist.


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.
