Caw! Caw! Caw!

Like a crow without wings,
I fall toward syllables
exploring the dark
searching for light
recording caws climbing up from cracks in my soul.

Brenda Warren 2016

The first line of this poem is adapted from a line in Linda Hogan’s poem “Skin.” Her line is “like crows without wings.” For our final poem of April, Elizabeth suggested that we write a piece to anchor our work this month.

A big thank you to Elizabeth, whose suggestions have driven and inspired a large number of my poems this month. She created the badge below to honor our achievement… 30 poems in 30 days! Caw! Caw! Caw!

  1. I like this, Brenda — it’s you! And you did a great job in pulling together your anchor piece. I went a different direction with my initial response to prompt 30…and decided to stick with it rather than taking a better stab at following the prompt. So I’m finally back ’round reading the Day 30 pieces! It was a pleasure to share the month of April with you over at 1Sojournal. ~Paula


  2. I’m cawing right back at you, lol. Love your anchor piece. Do you realize that’s the comment you made on my first piece this past month. Love those circles of completion. I wonder if you know how very much light shines through those cracks in your soul. You earned and created some great poetry Brenda, Brava!
