A Circle of Life

A nest full of helpless chicks await A mother osprey in search of  food Her eyes trained on a school of bait To take back to her hungry brood  In an instinctive quest for survival She is meticulously dissecting the ocean At the nest they await her arrival   In a blind raucous helpless commotion  A large school of plump bunker surface  To avoid bigger fish swimming deep Unaware of the danger above them Mother osprey has promises to keep.

Linda, Thank you. Apologies for not letting you know that I love your work; it is immediate, raw and yet beautifully sensitive, well done. I do most of my work on my Iphone and therefore do not always catch the most recent submissions.
