A fellow blogger, Cee, offers us a challenge to take a photo of flowers every day.
Ok enough pictures of birds but stsying on the same theme, here is a poem I wrote about birds.
The nest held two eggs
Then demanded food
Birds of a feather
Can’t stick together
If they want to feed their offspring
One went, got feed, probably seed
One stayed, fed, and filled every need
They tweeted and squeaked
They returned and sang and flew
Until they didn’t
The empty nest is still there
In the yard which is where
Inmates stand, and sit, and stare
Voices raised, fists clenched
Ready for a fight
While birds play and
Fill their days with flight
Perhaps they will return someday
( I thought I saw one today)
The inmates will smile, look and pray
And perhaps, just perhaps, the birds will stay.
