Fly afar from the flock

Escape the Murder

The crows, cloaked in night
with watchful beady eyes
cry out like wanderers
foes in disguise

A murder, throng of beating feathers
patrols through the midnight sky
they flock, they cackle
observed by the glowing crescent of the night

He hastens among them
a blur of sleek black
but his glassy eyes house wariness
Fly afar from the flock

Luminescence rides upon the churning clouds
shadows dance upon the ground
the rustle of feathers
like malevolent whispers
Fly afar from the flock.

I've discovered that I am rather fond of poetry. The way the words lace together and flow so beautifully - it is simply magical. 
I couldn't muster up the perfect story idea for NaNoWriMo this month, so I've decided to take it slow and search for one among my poems.

He Who Forms The Mountains

It's places like Rattlesnake Ridge (or any given mountaintop) that put me in an overwhelming state of awe and humbleness over Jesus. The initial wonder that strikes me at the top is of the magnificent view and mountains - but then I am reminded of how God reigns above them all. It's just too much for a human to fathom.
What a wonderful Savior!
