The Dark by Peycho Kanev

The raven takes its form from
the darkest part of the night consumed
in the anachronistic décor of
time wrapped around black columns
and arches connecting two points
of the ground with eternity.
In the gloomy orchard the bird waits
for the moment when all moments
shatter the space and the bright
light seeps through his feathers.
