Seven brothers are turned to birds and only their little sister can save them...


Ah! so here is where I left it!:
a little grotto nestled in the wet greens
of an october ravine
open to me, rock agape
its sacred seeming granite edge laced
in winter-nude wisteria
I shake and shudder
as I pull my expansive feathered cloak close
its warmth at last! an ebon-aubergine of quills
that shimmer and ruffle and weave
enfolded in my lost skin
I walk out and into the winds
at my back, the Glass Mountain sings
its bluegreenbluegreenblue iridescence
translucent against firmament
unnoticed, six ravens rise
black wings beat a dissonance against mists
whitened by moonlight
and I? I am the seventh
— Misha Penton
