Robin, Worm, Crow, And Vole continued (Worm spots something)

It was an unlikely coterie that began their journey together that day. To a casual observer, the scene was comical, with the birds and worm flitting from tree to tree and Vole scurrying right behind on the ground. Crow was in the lead, but he knew as little of where he was going as did each. Worm was perched in Crow’s open beak in awe. He had never seen the world from higher than an old log he once climbed. The expansiveness of this new world left him speechless in wonder. By now his body had... Sign in to see full entry.

Robin, Worm, Crow, and Vole Con’t. (A Journey begins)

The discussion continued for quite some time. Robin, Worm, and Vole all expressed their opinions. The one thing all agreed on was that they needed to find someone ‘who does know’ (to quote Crow). One thing led to the next and soon they found themselves, ‘the 4 musketeers on a mission’! Crow led the way (of course) cradling Worm in his Beak. Vole ran from tree to tree, following the erratic path of Crow and Robin. They had tried, as a group, to agree upon whom to see. But is was not happening and... Sign in to see full entry.

Robin, Worm, Crow, and Vole – Crow is a Skeptic

Crow continued his speech, “How would coyotes eat?… or owls? … or bobcats? Half the planet would starve to death!” Worm hung his head and his glow began to fade slightly. There was a hesitation in his voice, “I don’t know all those details. All I know is what I saw down in that tunnel and what it did to me. You all know that I did not have to return to the surface, but what I know is that I did have to return … to share what I saw!” “Well, it sure would be great not to have to listen for snakes...

Robin, Worm, Crow, and Vole Continued (A Debate rages)

Well, there it was …out in the open …. shocking and too incredible to fully grok. Of course Crow was the first to speak. “I have seen the seasons come and go many times and I have seen the dangers and the consequences of a lapse in vigilance.” “I have too, but something has shifted and continues to shift,” Worm said thoughtfully, almost to himself. Vole, who usually kept her opinions to herself, spoke up and said sarcastically, “I suppose we will see a lion and lamb lying down together.” Robin... Sign in to see full entry.

Worm Finishes His Speech (Robin, Worm, Crow, and Vole Con't.)

The glow emanating from worm had now intensified to a cherry red. Even Vole had to shield her eyes. Crow and Robin had instinctively backed up a few steps from the Vole tunnel's entrance. Worm was too caught up in his own speech to notice the increasing intensity. His inner experience was of total inspiration. The fervor of inspired thoughts matched the intensity of his glow. "Friends,.... yes, I consider you all my friends; I know from my brief time on this earth that survival of the fittest is... Sign in to see full entry.

Robin, Worm, Crow, and Vole Con’t. (Worm’s confession)

"I had a lot of time to think down there in the dark," Worm struggled to come up with just the right words. "I have lived 11 winters, so I have seen a lot of things. I have seen crows eat my kind when they are hungry enough. I have even seen voles on the edge of starvation eating cardboard. I even had my tail chopped off by a shovel once, but I grew another one". Robin, Vole, and Crow were totally engaged by Worm's little speech. Serveral times, Crow wanted to interrupt, but he held his beak. He... Sign in to see full entry.

Robin, Worm, Crow, and Vole Con’t. (Worm’s confession)

Worm, already feeling akward and self conscious, was now just noticing his own glow. Everyone was staring at him. From the inside, the glow did not feel especially intense. There was no hot flash or warmth of any kind. Worm did notice a subtle shift in his internal energy. It felt like an inner tourch, a beacon of light had been lit from the inside. It gave him the confidence to speak. “All my life, I have been warned about the dangers of traveling too close to the surface. I have lost friends... Sign in to see full entry.

Robin, Worm, Crow, and Vole Con't. (Worm has a confession)

All eyes focused on Worm. Worm said nothing for what seemed like a very, very long time. When he spoke, it was in halting sentences and in subdued voice. "I.... I don't want to die today, but I had to.... I had to say.... I just wanted to tell you.... [suddenly Worm turned bright red - I am not just talking about red as in fire engine red, but a luminous red that could only be described as 'Worm was glowing' ]. One could easily observe that worm was struggling to find just the right word. It was... Sign in to see full entry.

Robin, Worm, Crow, and Vole (Vole Delivers)

Posted on February 11, 2011 by shamsuddin001 http://poetryisforsissies.webs.com When Vole poked his head out from the tunnel, Robin and Crow were deep into an intense conversation about integrety. ”I know he will return because he promised he would.” Robin said with conviction. “You are a fool, Robin! No worm is going to return to certain death just because he promised.” Crow chuckled. ”Life and living to see another day have their own morals.” “Worm may plead for his life, but I am sure he will...

The Hell Generations (Robin, Worm, & Crow Con't)

Back on the surface, Robin and Crow were deep in a conversation about the vagaries of raising a new generation every year. (Just imagine if our children grew up in a single year and then we started over the next year). “I remember three seasons back hatching a brood of chicks that I call ‘the generation from hell’,” Robin said with a shudder. “Our ‘hell generation’ was just last year,” Crow responded. “I will never forget when the three of them attacked a pack of coyotes. They said afterward... Sign in to see full entry.
