Poetry Friday: A Raven, the Shade of Shadow

A raven,
the shade of shadow,
robs the roofline of its clean edges,
each caustic call a spike in morning's throat.

I usually introduce the challenge before the poem, but this month, it was so short, I thought I'd switch it up. The challenge (from Laura) was to compose a short poem (six lines or less) describing an animal of your choice using all three of these words: spike, roof, shadow.  What would YOU describe with these words?
