Four magpies – What does it mean?

Four magpies – What does it mean?


Three on the left, one to the right

Under the wing a blotch of white

Snow peeking from

A field of jet black

A hobbling motion

On a sea of green

A dance of mystery

On a color scheme

Messaging from the Muse

Thieving, or just there minding

Their own business entangled

In the sound of a faraway

Unaware green comet

Tracked by a million telescopes

And Auduboned naked eyes

Obsessing on visual portents

Their dormant organ deaf

To the symphony of celestial spheres
