The Dance

Rosy and purple, another faux spring day in the heart of winter when a huge raven swoops into view and lands. With open wings bent, he bounces gracefully around the small patch of earth, movement that looks like a ritual mating dance to attract the still raven on an overturned cable spool. Within a few minutes, he realizes his mistake and flies away.
