Rook Ravaged Skies

Nighttime on Still Waters
Rook Ravaged Skies
Show Notes Chapter Markers

This has been a week of blustery winds and storms. Perfect weather for the wild choreographies of the rooks jousting on the wind. The devil has spat upon the blackberries and we (rather hurriedly) mark our first birthday – this podcast is one year old!

Journal entry:

“2nd October, Saturday

Below a thrown scatter of rooks
 South-westerly gusts kick up
 leaves not yet ready to drop.

Rains seeps into the cuffs of my coat

Autumn glory.”
