May 10 – Empty Nest

I watched a baby bluebird hatch the night of a poetry reading two weeks ago, and the trio has flown, except for one egg that never hatched. Joy and grief in the same nest. Life is like that. Laughter and tears, joy and despair.

empty nest

that tiny bluebird
I watched hatch two weeks ago
has taken to skies

one little sibling
requiem in eggshell blue
heavenly flight of its own
