Empty Nest

Yesterday, she was there….sitting on her nest…..on, Mothers Day.
Four small blue eggs…she was keeping warm.  Gone now.
Something happened overnight……the eggs have  disappeared
and she is no longer there.   No small blue egg pieces on the ground.
No sign of the tragedy that has occurred in the Robin family.
Just the empty nest remains.

    Is that the way life goes or what?
    One day you are here and the next day you are gone.
    It is not any less sad to see the Robin and eggs gone forever.
    As you very well know i use to have a gas lamp birds nest at the “old home”.

      You are right, that is the way life goes.
      I was, however, looking forward to watching and
      recording the hatching and growth of the neighborhood’s
      newest family. Maybe I should put up a gas lamp.
      It might be safer for them.
