July Anomalies A – Z: Raven

This is a mystery, that:
His fingers are of iron;
his ears are elemental fire.
His legs are cedars tall
and his eyes are pomegranates,
but his mouth,
his mouth is the raven,

the raven dark and swift
through the night
through the wind
over floods and deserts

to bring a word, a message
to bring deliverance from demons,
iridescent with preternatural wisdom.

This is part of July Anomalies A-Z, a creative writing exercise and not intended to be an altogether accurate picture of the creature described above.
