Moon in repose

Shadows rest on the snow

Full moon spreads light on wintry night

Free Verse: What’s Nest?

Gathered with purpose
Constructed with instinct and anticipation
Aptness renders a work of art
Situated from elements and harm
An air of expectancy hovers
And then she takes her place

Free Verse: Mother’s Image

Needy nest cries for her care and attention
Watching her wings that leave, hearing her rustling returns
Dependent nestlings instinctively eye her every move
About to fledge, chicks feel her warmth as she nestles close
Have demanded her food and protection
Time to leave her and their cradle
Off they fly with mother’s image
