fragility

the Fallen Nest

the Downy Woodpecker

the Red Squirrel

a birds nest fell down to the ground
a winter's wind threw it down from its up above place
the sight of the nest so out of place down on the ground
brought to mind a word
-- fragility --
a moment from then to now
from quiet stalwartness
to a disquieting splat
from safety
to homelessness

an out of place wind
that's all it took

we live in such a fragile nest
