Mother Bird

Her nest is traditional with modern twists, 
 fluff pulled from our car cover, 
 passion fruit tendrils for strength,
Skeleton leaves and feathers for cozy effect,
She sits giving warmth with the patience of a Saint.

I can see the diligence of the hardworking mama bird quite vividly. Nice to be reading you again, Suzanne ... I'm having difficulty re-collecting my muse again for some reason. Which is rather strange to me, because I look around me and there's much to write about ... it'll come back eventually, I hope ...

This is so sweet Suz. It amazes me how they don't let the weather get them down, even when soaked by rain. Cheers, Connie
