Dark Raven

~ Dark Raven ~ By ~ Scruffy Dude ~

~

Carrion darkened the dawn on Bryn’s White Mount.

Lingering longingly amongst us.

Thoughtfully accounting silently counting.

Else discounting unsavoury cuts.

~

“Cras! Cras! Cras!” cackled Mugin’s merry Crow.

“Today a proud fallen hero!”

    With our kindest regards and grateful appreciation for this show of support. Thank you so much for your re-Blog from Tina, for your encouragement here and at Gallbloggers, and the succinct and mindful introduction to this post. Scruffy will be thrilled, delighted to have been read and appreciated and no doubt celebratory all week when hearing his words have travelled beyond his known shore. Your kindness is gratefully acknowledged, their smile your reward for ‘friendship’ from afar. Thank you.

    Your following and readership at Gallbloggers is most valued, your support priceless, your company always welcome, and the field in which we stand a place to freely wander amongst friends.

    Take care in all ways for always.

    Namaste 🙂
