Crow Saturday: Laughing Tree Face

Once I flew in a tree

Thinking that it was only an oleander 

To perch and squawk on.
But this one had a freaky face

On a limb surrounded by leaves

Some kind of troll head

That I couldn’t scare or chase
It’s body had no wings 

It just smiled, a toothless grin

Like it froze in a ceramic mold.
The more I tried to frighten it

The more I mocked the evil soul

The more  it wanted to stay.

Freelance writer, poet, yogi and photographer from Santa Barbara, California. I write and take pictures about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching years in California. The things that move me may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry, pictures and stories resonate with you.
