NaPoWriMo Day #13

Little Nest
Tightly woven
Abandoned after
Its' original use
In the nest
Is one egg

The break
The shape of a beak
The broken egg is
Like a broken promise
Or dream

Against many odds
Predators and weather



The nest
Must be hidden
When a nest is found
Upon careful inspection
It is a secret disclosed
A story told

The birds make their selection
A mate is chosen
A safe place is found
Each perfect twig discovered
And brought to the nest

The weaving is done
To perfection
Each bird's nest
May have a style
As to it's breed
Each nest
Proclaims individual
Based upon the
Materials chosen

They sit on their eggs
And protect them
When the eggs hatch
The parents work
To feed the young
And at last it is time to fly

Some do...

Success is
A wonder of nature
When all is said and done

Beautiful drawing and wonderful words. And the success being a wonder applies to us all.
