Treetop Raven II

Wild gray windy,
winter raw day.
Raven goes dancing
at the tip of a pine.
Raven is always
just messing around.

Crazy gangling dance
riding turbulent air.
Head reaching down,
legs long extended,
Raven is jostled,
wings tight folded.

Improbable collection
of sharp black angles.
Neck straining low,
feet alternately reach.
That makes the dance,
left, right, left, right.

He touches, air tumbles.
Raven topples, bobs,
bounces back up.
Game to do it again.
Raven is always
just messing around.
