faithful
sitting, waiting, protecting
& feeding
 two little ones peek out of their safe nest
sitting on the side of the nest looking
at the big world
& just like that..
they take tender steps
& then flight &
just like that
they're gone

thank you for having your home
under our pergola
we loved watching
the whole miracle
from building the nest
to flying away
be safe &
come back next time
i miss you
