I love this photograph.
It's the prompt for Jason Evan's The Clarity of Night Contest which opens today.

Even if you do not feel compelled to enter, please stop by to read the entries as they are posted each day for the duration of the contest. They will be many and varied and vital.
Did I say I love this photograph?
Images cascade: The folk rhyme: One crow, sorrow. Two crows, joy; Odin's ravens: Huginn and Muninn (Thought and Memory), omens, sorceries, scavengers, avatars, Thunderbirds, Tricksters, black wings, broken wings, winged gods, nervermores...
They are right you know,
Fear is like black wings,
swooping and soft,
That hover like a raven
Outside your window.
And sometimes the feathers
Flicker against the panes.
