Theme: Family

Ennui



Two busy birds make a home,
organizing, assembling, collecting, preparing.
Chicks emerge, demanding constantly
doting parents yield relentlessly
feeding, loving, steering tirelessly.
Obstinate young boisterous, bouncy too
briskly advance to green pasture.
Two aged birds remain in the
building of bricks and mortar that
stands mutely,
echoes of laughter gone
engrossed in solitude, contemplating 
in silent seclusion.
