Growing Up

As I awake I hear singing coming from the window
Opening up the blue curtains I see trees swaying in the breeze
Looking closer I see a bird's nest
Little ones waiting for breakfast
Where is mom with their food
Here comes mom with breakfast in bed
At the end of a busy day before I hop into bed
I must check out the window for my little new friends
They have been tucked into their bed of twigs
Now I must be tucked into my bed of soft blankets
Each morning I awake to singing
As the weeks go by the singing is getting louder
The little ones are getting bigger
They are getting a beautiful feather coat
Today I awakened to no singing
I ran to my window and tore open the blue curtains
The nest was now enemy
My friends had grown up and flown off
The mama bird sat looking at me
We both felt sadness as a tear ran down our checks

A vivid picture of life evolving, and although the ending was a bit sad, the tears shed were mostly of survival and joy. Nicely penned Paula Goldsmith!...ab
