What is the Ultimate Reality? – A Poem

By Adam J. Pearson

Painting: Crow on a Cherry Branch” by Koson
What is the ultimate reality?
Outside my window,
A big, black crow
Perched on a bough,
Caws.
It pauses.
Tense–
Taut–
Still–
Ready.
For an instant,
It waits.
And then,
WOOSH!
Down, it plummets!
Down!
Down!
Down to the snow-covered ground.

For a moment,
Nothing–
And then,
Up it soars!
A blur of black.
It lands
And in its beak,
A bug–
Twitches.
