A wet walk over the Wick

The lone Raven watcher for Lucifer

Stepping out with Stella I aware of a lone Raven watching us, stories would have me believe the line raven is Lucifers watcher,  not that I believe it. The sun is in a dappled cloudy sky, shining thru but as it’s distance from planet earth increases the temperature is not so grand. The clouds on …
