Day 11 - the beautiful death

the beautiful death

which way?
I ask the crow
scanning his piercing eyes
towards pastel western skies
and as he goes
I go

This form is called Badger's Hexastitch, which is like a cinquain with two more syllables added. I like the way it looks in print. I may try stringing together a group of these stanzas into a larger poem before NaPoWriMo is over. But for now, it will have to work as a pseudo-zen death poem.
