The Nest

woven with care
so fledging feet
will remember softness


veiled in a silken web
the ghost appears
before the death

Home Sweet Home

a most charming box
entices inhabitants
to nest and rest

Everything In Its time

everyone’s fledged
the nest rests
as apples ripen

Inside the Bird Box

on her nest
of moss and dryer fluff

Loon’s Nest

as she sits
creation is constructed of
stillness and patience


the clamor for food
an ancient noise
that starts the hunt

The Look

breath held
drawing strength from stillness
mother eyes the giant intruder
