And then there were...






a murder of crows
a rabble of ravens
all in wilding disarray

cawing, raving
over the same bad meat
to validate their stance

a magpie, black and white,
swoops from highline wire
boosts fare from the fight

wings away in mock salute
another bona fide success
in an endless feudal row

a murder of crows
a rabble of ravens
all in wilding disarray


Three Word Wednesday, moderated by ThomG, offers disarray, validate, rabble as the word prompt today.

Ooo, a murder of crows, wonderful.

And what a fun game sometimes to fill in the blanks on... a (noun) of (noun.)

Someone once wrote "a tangle of children," playing cards on the carpet.

Words, tumbling and tumbled and so darn yummy!

great, original take on the prompts. I love murder of crows. I also love a whiteness of swans. How descriptive.

I can see this all playing out in mother natures belly...wonderful job with the words and with writing such an eloquent homage to the natural world.

'a murder of crows' and 'a rabble of ravens' and 'a magpie' - I love where you took this.

What fabulous wordsmithing!

Tumblewords, I don't believe you.

Those words might tumble inside you and out of you, but they are too well placed to be random...

I like "wilding disarray", the feeling of motion and sound this evokes. I can just hear all those birds, fighting over scraps.
