Overcoming Bloglessness

A Possible Crow


For those of you who didn’t know,

I may or may not have a crow

that came here with a broken wing,

poor little thing.

Perhaps it lives in my backyard

and it’s been hard

to keep a secret of

a broken little bird I love.

Not as valued as an eagle,

it’s illegal

to possess a crow.

Just let it go

to meet its fate,

upon a raptors’ dinner plate.

Is it wrong to let it stay?

Would you send it on its way?








Daily Prompt: Pride and Joy


Author: Susan B Raven

For many years I have suffered from debilitating bloglessness, only writing in my head, while everyone else posted and shared with ease. Previous attempts at recovery have failed, my secret journals edited to death, pages torn out, crumpled and trashed. I will not succumb to this embarassing condition. I will continue to struggle against the rampant backspacing and endless blank staring. I refuse to relapse into the void that is bloglessness. I can do it. I am doing it. I am Overcoming Bloglessness.

  1. Is that true? It is illegal. My goodness. Glad you doctored it.

  2. He belongs with you, not on a dinner plate.

  3. I’m sure there’s an exception for treating a hurt bird! If not, time to make a new law.

  4. Many raptors outside my window that would love to meet your poor little crow.
