A Handmade Tale: The myths say that the Raven brought fire to the people by stealing it from the sun; I’m similarly enlightened by the Ravens and children I watch. (A 420 character, 9-line poem with my sketches by Patty) http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/handmade-tales/

Echoes of little kid chortles, cries, chats, & chases.

I still hear them…AND their screams,

like the KAAAHH! of that young Raven who dashed by me in the woods,

impudent trickster,

rallying his sibs to come play drop-stick-and-then-dive-to-retrieve-it-in-midair,

even though he still needs his parents to feed and clothe,

well, not clothe,

but teach him the ways of the world while they pick his nits.
