Seeing Kelly Moore

When i was in Sante Fe last we I had the opportunity to meet the artist Kelly Moore. He is a fellow "Crow Lover" and we could not leave with out buying one of his paintings. Kelly is recognized as an outside artist, but whatever he sees and paints outside really hits me inside. Look at his stuff. Click his Bio below.

Bird of Prayer


The crows are gardening again.
Up with the sun they peck
the earth.
On some occasions
they bring their young crying
to the land; morsels are stuffed
down tender throats, raw
from cawing.

In summer they solo and caw
to God’s pause, caw again, move,
and caw once more. A trinity
of praise.
In that joy hopping,
movement of flying prayer,
crow recreates a dance of thanks-
never seen by Noah.
