Suburban Raven's Revellery - Poem by Seema Jayaraman

A burst of million spheres flying
Air riddled with tiny rainbow globes
A world of glittering light and laughter
courses in all directions to the sky plying

Crystal water gurgling cross country
Over a stretch of Suburban broken road
Meandering around jagged granite shrapnel
Rolling tumbling over tar smeared pebbly

I wonder the cause of such airborne joy
the sight of a crowd of black knights
Boisterous Ravens brazenly exposed
Reveling in freedom of clear water, Oh boy!

The two inch deep stream just right
From a freshly breached water pipe
The feathered friends crowing in chorus
standing at edge of jagged granite precipice

Diving their lithe bodies in bliss
Preening over ash waxed weathers
Sending water droplets screaming with fun
Loaded with the rising Sun's wink

Such happiness on a bustling suburban path
the jostling crowds carefully step past
Unaware of little joys laid out for our marvel
The jamboree these tiny beings hath
