Between The Star Strewn Night Sky And Earth Below

Moonlight reflects
     On the back of
         Raven’s wings

An opening in the clouds
     Above this sacred tree

     Between the star strewn night sky
          And earth below

     A messenger in wait
                   No where yet to go

Preening jet black feathers
     Beak a comb
         
With precise meticulous care
              Silver moonlight
                  
Reflecting in those eyes

     Raise your head
         
And turn your gaze this way

     Adjust your wings
                    And listen to the night

For those who walk below your branches
         
     Seek illumination on their path

                    Be the one to lead the way
                         From branch
                             
To moonlit branch

I dedicate this piece to Colm Maguire, who embodied the spirit of Raven, for me, in his sacred dance as healer in Divine light.

With deepest gratitude to you, in your work as humble witness to the Illumination that has occurred within my soul-self, under your loving care.

So blessed to call you friend.
Catherine ~
