Solitary Sentinel II a poem by RestLeSsD

The solitary sentinel
Surveys the darkened sky.
Basking in the moonlight
As clouds move slowly by.

The night has just now brightened.
As the moon continues to rise.
The crow sits upon his perch
Surveying the cerulean skies.

For him it’s a brief moment.
Time to relax and to renew
But only for just a moment
For family duty calls anew.

Back to work he will go,
He will fly off by and by
This solitary sentinel,
Up into the moonlit sky…
