A Beautiful Raven

“You become what you give your attention to.” – Epictetus

In a fleeting moment, a majestic raven's encounter with trash prompts contemplation on symbolism and beauty found in unexpected settings.

As I was driving,
I saw a beautiful Raven picking through the trash.
He was no mere crow.
A mighty Raven.
“Why has he resorted to picking through the trash?”
I thought.
I should have stopped and took a picture.
