  • Crow knows the unknowable mysteries of creation
    and is the keeper of all sacred law. Do not try to
    figure crow out. It is the power of the unknown at
    work, and something special is about to happen.
    Crow can give you the courage to enter the
    darkness of the void, which is the home of all
    that is not yet in form.

    landscape obscured, shadow trees
    dark sumi brushstrokes

    three bossy black crows
    I wave arms, cry out: Caw! Caw!
    they spread wide wings, flee!
