Thirteen Ways to Look at Blackbird

byKeshane©

I

The way I see a blackbird,

Is by looking at the beast,

By merely looking at the nature within.


II

I see the black feathers.


III

I see the beady black eyes.


IV

I see the sharp black beak.


V

I see the omen that flies in packs.


VI

I see the loner that signifies the end.


VII

I see the pack that protects its young with the darkness.


VII

I see the light within the darkness.


IX

And even the darkness within the light.


X

I see the power that it withholds.


XI

I see the weakness that others pray upon.


XII

I see what happens to the all.


XIII

But then again it is just a blackbird.
