Thanks BW it is a poem that can be interpreted in various ways both for humans and for birds - I had to post the image of the fledgling I found it simply delightful:-) Hugs jan xx

There's a story in this haiku. A mixture of joy tinged with sadness too when the young fly away...#7

Yes that is true Nandita - my son left home in 2013 to go to university.. the week he was leaving my husband was diagnosed with cancer.. but going away to university has been the BEST thing ever for my son and in the circumstances the timing was perfect - he is flying high with his studies and away from all the trauma the last 18 months have brought:-) Hugs Jan xx
