In the Imagination of Old Crows

If you are a sweet young angel, and not an aging carrion creature like each of us old birds, life can be glamorous in sexy frocks by the superior talent known as Ruby Pearl:






You can prowl the night, lipstick in hand and purse swinging, singing a sassy little song and preening your feathers.


You can sashay gracefully in artful shoes:






while trinkets like these adorn you:








Or if you want you can just dress up like Chickita Miranda Chickenpants and have a party with some Wild Turkey.

We old crows are jealous. We wish to be your age again.

Ah, if wishes were wings we all would fly. A magpie can recognize itself in a mirror, but we old crows wonder who are those older women in there looking out at us and keeping us grounded in reality.

Except. . . we can look away quickly and imagine such wondrous things.

Great stuff! And I'm afraid I do tend look away from that lady in the mirror and forget I'm an old crow. I just can't bring myself to join the ladies my age who are beginning to dress and wear their hair like their husbands ;-(.
Oh well -- sliding into eccentricity here, I think ^V^.
Blessings,

Oh to be young again! Great collection, most of it is way past my comfort zone, but I would wear that jewelry all the time.
