Here’s my entry:

Crow Girl

By Gabi Snyder

Rain soaks socks.

Rain chills cheeks.

Rain drenches.

Crow, rain slips off your slick feathers.

Rain slips off my coat and boots.

Wind blows hats off.

Wind whips hair.

Wind pushes sideways.

Wings spread, Crow soars with the wind.

Arms spreads, I soar with the wind.

             I am Crow Girl.
