Empty Nest

Rating: 4.1
Sweat in summer,
Shivered in the winter
Bruised the feathers, endured the pain
Flown to miles to collect the straws

Built a nest
Admired a beautiful life
With chirp of birds
Cacophony all around

Opened their eyes
Embracing close to my heart
Put the grains, opening their mouth
Protected, clasping inside the wings
Taught how to fly and brave the sky

All have grown
Flying with their own wings
Elder had flown, followed the young
Occasional was the appearance
Those days are also over

Now aged is will
No strength in wings
Empty is nest
Silence is all around.

Nested sequences of life old, young and the cycle continues....Life is not permanent though the nest is unless is destroyed.Nests get transferred or tresspassed or tessellated or masqueraded but every nest has some stories behind to tell..A very experienced hand in contemporary poetry

Nest, once glamorous, full of life becomes lifeless and dumb.What a tragedy! Why should the children discard their parents when once they become independent.All children should read this poem and make home free from silence and spread the blanket of happiness and gay everywhere.

Why does the nest get empty? Why do have to become old Why tell me why! Sad but significant. It is the rugged reality of living! Well done my friend.10/10

Good poem, Santosh. Poetic reminder to all of us to keep honouring our beloved parents. Let's all give a call to our mother or father at this moment. Well done.
