The Nest

I was sad to find this nest in my yard. It had fallen out the tree and I was worried that the feathered occupants would not have a home. I then realized that they would most likely be just fine and begin the process of 'rebuilding' quickly; quite happily actually. That is what birds do - build nests, lay their eggs, keep them warm, feed their babies, and teach them to fly on their own.

He who blinds himself to joy does the winged life destroy;
but he who kisses the joy as it flies lives an eternity's sunrise.

~ William Blake ~

To all who nurture and keep the nest - Happy Mother's Day.
