Raven Lady, Did You Fly?

As is my wont
My nightly custom
In the early hours of morn
When the world is all quiet
And mostly asleep. 

I stood silently ‘neath the dark sky
Seeking communion with my Golden One
My heart my spirit on the Otherside. 

On this peaceful night
All within the same view
Sat Lady Moon so full so bright
Orion the mighty Hunter
And the red pulsing Betelgeuse
Oh what a glorious sight! 

But then did I notice
The black figure of a bird
Sail across Her face. 

Lady Raven Spirit
Lady Raven Spirit
Friend so dear
A friend so true 

Was it you who flew?
Was it your spirit from the Otherside
Winging past to deliver the message I sought?
Or was it simply
To wish me Peace?

Raven Lady
Raven Lady
Did you fly?

I love this! I like the form too. So this is of what you speak...and the answer is yes, I was flying very high that night. Well, someday I will recount the story to you, I am not likely to forget it.
