! ! ! ! ! Thus.....


Stillness pounces on night.
the sound of the wind,
rattling, I'm hearing.
The tallest tree of my yard
is bending to touch the soil.
How many years have passed it
could not get the smell of the
earth! I know the couple of sparrows
are chirping out of fear.
Their nest is now on ground!
Had my mom been here, she would
have alerted of the wind,
of storm, of worst weather!
Thus, she brought me up
with alerts and warnings!
So that my nest can't be broken,
in strong wind, in storm,
in the worst weather!

    Wonderful! I love the image of the tree bending to smell the ground and the role your mom played in ensuring you knew how to build a storm proof nest. I truly enjoyed the way you put this together. Very clever. Thank you. (Report) Reply
