Spring Crows

by Chris Sorrenti

a caw-cophony of crows
call out to one another
in the canopy above
that first warm day of spring

I miss winter already... But it's still pretty cool here and it's suppose to rain for the next week, so at least I have that. I haven't seen a crow in a long time. We have the occasional raven here, but no crows that I've seen. Too bad too - I've always like them. Anyway, I'm not very fond of warmer months, but I do like the image you've pasted here. A canopy full of crows is wonderful (for a while anyway); very nicely done.

I think it's going around- "spring fever". Thanks for this upbeat write. Alot of imagery. Farewll winter blahs (I hope).

I love the sparcity of your language. Where poetry is concerned I think that less is often more. Like the word-play too!

You nailed the crows Cris. Well done....CharMin

Well said Chris. With March outside flaming the old desires, we can turn from the fires of winter and be encouraged we have the comparison, lest we may not know the full range of pleasantries to come. Thanks.

Welcome alliterations, making me smile at the caw-caphony, and ready for spring! Thank you.

Nice to read my first spring poem on this site and glad it was from you. You do the seasons so well. Smiling at the caw-cophony :-) Today we took a ride further south on what seemed like the first spring day staying in the low seventies. The robins and cardinals are back and the crocus. I feel like you are getting us started. Thanks.

I love the alliteration. Short and sweet too. Great write.

A great #1 poem today, reminding us Spring is just around the corner. Succinct and powerful.

Oh do I await spring, Chris..and if it takes the cawing of crows to be its harbinger, bring them on! Great metaphor

in such a succinct array of images and sounds and words, I am thrilled this peaks at the top of the top-rated list...poetry at it's most natural...peace, jewels

Chris, you caught me in your splendid alliteration delight ;)

Smile on my face thinking of springs warmth :)

I could hear them while I read, great choice of words!

i don't know how i missed this one! even though spring doesn't mean quite as much to me as it used to, living in the desert now, i appreciate the feeling, miss the feeling of waking up from winter.
