Wednesday Words – Rook

1 January, 2014
The rook caws three times, pauses, caws again three times, pauses. He only ever gives three cries and then waits. Why? He perches on top of the street lamp, a black vulture-like silhouette against a snow grey sky. His cry echoes loud above the drone of bus and car but no one except me, looks up to search for him. Why? Can others really not hear his shout? Or do they just ignore him? A cry of nature amongst the concrete buildings.
