I am the blackbird sitting on the branch
Watching you
Peering into every aspect you do

    Beautiful poem..I have noticed many times when ever we keep food to eat, it doesn't eat first, instead it call other crow to join by kaw kaw, some time it may also give indication of guest arrival..but before the news of my fathers death reached us, that early morning 5am, heard so many crows sound, kaw kaw...today also when i hear in chorus i feel upset...beautiful and lovely write on blackbird..something very different poem. I loved reading it. (Report) Reply

    when black birds begin to gather it is not a good sign. I think they could get nasty and mean. I hope this one is nice. a good write (Report) Reply

    Always something eerie about blackbirds staring on a tree and a voice you gave it into an abstract light hearted poem...Hitchcock would be proud of you...great...regards (Report) Reply

    black bird black bird be
    i hear the echoes and see the blood on the walls
    its no longer a secret you can keep
    as i sit still while you cut down the forbidden tree
    a life riding to an end, i sit and stare
    do you feel it, not my glare but your flesh
    burning with each step.

    don't mind what i just wrote what i read gave me the idea to have lil fun and write that, i love this an enjoyable read great work (Report) Reply

    Here in India some future-tellers tell that black-bird(crow?) let out different tunes(sometimes soft too) to denote human beings days ahead. They are very social bird. They are united. I think, better than human society. Lovely write sir! (Report) Reply

    I really enjoyed this.
    It reminded me of a song... starts off low and eerie, quickly escalating into a loud burst of sound. Then a small tune of unease.
    Can you feel the unease of my stare. My favourite line.

    The language you use reminds me of a song about war, both sorrowful yet animated and vivid. Great job! (Report) Reply

    Impressive. Blackbirds are always a bit sketchy but in this poem they are downright nefarious. I like the way this sounds like a nursery rhyme with the kaw-ing of the birds and the songlike verses. It adds to the overall chilling effect. Winding up a jack in the box and waiting for it to jump out at you! (Report) Reply

    A good poem, As a child I was always weary of seeing a blackbird. They can be very noisy.

    The poem unveils a picture scintillating with images and overflowing spontaneity of things poetic yet real.
    An excellent verse from Midnight`s Voice that is all around the clock...
    Thank you Thomson Robinson for writing such a fine poem... (Report) Reply

    They do have very beady eyes. This poem will not be beneficial to anyone suffering paranoia, but for everyone else it's a good spooky read. (Report) Reply
