Boding Raven

“Some battles are won with swords and spears, others with quills and ravens.”
– George R.R. Martin
Game of Thrones

After sudden torrential rain
Gliding soaring boding raven
Mindful of extreme summer heat
Searching for a sheltered haven
On the branch of a looming oak
There he rested feathers shaken
Sad tearless eyes; a muted croak
Hopeful he’s sadly mistaken
Sense of sinister foreboding
Something ill about to happen
Low rumbling his keen ears can hear
Portent of the coming dragon
Raven celestial messenger
Of good and ill the harbinger
