Black is Beautiful

As I survey far and wide
Sitting high on my perch
Resplendent in my
God given color
That I flaunt
With pride
Won’t give an inch
I will fight
With all my might
For my rights

This photo was taken by the author on December 25, 2018 at Desert View Point parking lot in Grand Canyon Desert View drive.  I was struck by the beauty of the bird’s jet black color and could not care less attitude.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

    1. Thank you.
      I don’t think it cares if it’s a male or female.
      For whatever it’s worth, the goddess of power in Hinduism is female. Not that that has stopped atrocities against women in India. We have no dearth of politicians in India putting their feet in their mouths proclaiming “boys will be boys”.


  1. Great shot! The expression is of complete disdain. You’re right, the crow (or raven) does not give a toss. We have a couple live at the top of the neighbour’s field. They have a thing about buzzards. Whenever they see one they attack it. Even when it’s nowhere near their nest, or in January when there are no eggs or chicks to protect. Mob rule. How very French 🙂
