Cawing Crows

Crows are communicating
across wide acres of woods.
Cawing out suggestions
along the familiar route
established by the elders.

I listen intently,
trying to translate
and decipher the message,
but their language 
remains mystery.

All I know for sure,
is their steady,
rowing flight pattern,

their cooperation
in efficient flocks,

and their unforgettable feathers
glossy with blackness.
