Sixteen Crows

In an earlier posting, I mentioned seeing sixteen crows and then hearing news of the death of my neighbour. From sixteen crows that were perched on the high-tension wire cables, the birds dwindled to zero as ten flew off, followed by ten, six and eventually all took off.

Yesterday, four of my kittens were found dead. I was stunned. It was totally unexpected.

So the question that begs an answer is whether the crows I saw were the harbingers of gloomy news of both the human's and animals' deaths... and do I expect more grim news today...

i dont know who you are but i googled "sixteen crows" because i wrote it in a poem today and i wanted to make sure i hadnt heard it anywhere before..well the line is "i counted sixteen crows in the graveyard today".
i just kind of thought that to be really weird and freaky..
