A Note for Mommy Bird...

It's quiet now.

All of your squawking, and complaining, and singing

is gone.

I loved them too

and my heart sank with yours to discover

the emptiness.

I understand.

And silence- Stillness- is all that I can offer.

  1. Nice karren... were those birds in your yard?

  2. Ya, they were two little baby birds in my strawberry bed in the backyard this past May. The mommy bird would dive-bomb Sonya any time she got close to the nest. I went to check on them one morning, and found that a kitty cat had eaten the babies. :-(
