Per Diem: Daily Haiku for November features Silvia Kempen’s collection on “Ravens and Crows.”
Silvia says that through her selections she aims to highlight corvid being: the inventiveness and adaptability of these birds, with some species being able to recognise themselves in the mirror, even show empathy. Their proximity to human communities has meant that from ancient times, ravens and crows entered human mythology and folklore, populated the arts and our mindscapes, becoming potent religious, spiritual, dream symbols – and now they even inhabit Per Diem: Daily Haiku!
Each day in November a poem will appear on the top right hand corner of the THF site header. Enjoy!
