A shady reputation follows the Japanese Jungle Crow since ancient to modern times, but it is one that is a well-deserved mythology. He is a trickster, a messenger, or even creator of the world. In Japanese Shinto “Karasu-tengu”, half-crow, half-human goblins capable of kidnapping adults and children, starting fires, and ripping apart those who dared damage the forest and “Yatagarasu”, a three-legged crow whose appearance is evidence of divine intervention. At the Zen temple in Kyoto where I stayed there is a crow roost where I would watch pairs gather on spring evenings. This is my whimsical meditation on the custom of moon-viewing or Tsukimi from the Karasu’s point of view. If I were a crow, the moon appears as a crow’s moon.
