The Flight Ahead Of Me - Poem by Francie Lynch

The ravens survey
The gated community,
Scouring for a meal.
They swoop low,
Caw and crow,
Conversing in harmony.
The repast dead
Are safely laid
Beneath their carrion beaks;
I, in grief
Shoo them off
Your bronzed memory:
Then I pause
To recall
The flight ahead of me.

Topic(s) of this poem: death, grief
