What do you see challenge: 2nd April

what-do-you-see-apr-2

His laughter was as the echo

of a thousand crows

lined in serried ranks

upon the branches

of a hundred graceful pines,

each silent, standing sentinel

over the boundless plains.

I realised my folly

for had I not stroked

the curving brazen contours

and in one foul stroke, released

the fabled genie of the lamp

  1. A lovely poem Bob. Is it inspired by Grimm’s fairy tales.
    This is especially beautiful
    “and in one foul stroke, released
    the fabled genie of the lamp.”
