left alone to rot

when rain and wind came too strong

broken egg, cold nest

  1. it is summer still life is terribly depressing… Strage and wierd… But there is always a silver lining in the clouds, let it even be just a lighting…
    truly abandoned

  2. When we found the young red bird
    on her first nest, we were awed.

    Amazed that she had chosen a spot
    so close to the pool and the people.

    We watched, protectively: neighbor cats
    and the swing of the long skimmer.

    After a series of hard summer rains
    we found the nest abandoned
    and one tiny egg left to rot

    I wrote a lot of versions
    before pushing publish
    on this haiku
