Raven

I will not write about death and mythology, but I will introduce you to ravens in a slightly different light than usual.

This is Gvozden. His owner Živko found him wounded more than a dozen years. Although he intended to release him, they became friends and the raven stayed. He learnt to talk by imitating people around, and he is famous by talking as a mailman: “Živko, domaćine!”

An ominous bird
but not our Gvozden raven.
When letter arrives
instead of postman he shouts
calling host to receive it.

For Carpe Diem #466, Raven (Native American)
