Nest Building

Pygmy nuthatch heaves
off the pine forest floor
beak-burdened with something
half it’s own length and 
stutter flies - rapid wings,
glide, stall, rapid wings -
to the hollow aspen knot.

  1. Love these words, they paint a wonderful picture in my mind.

    Thank you for sharing your lovely thoughts on what brings you peace. I too love to sit by water, so soothing & peaceful. I love that you call it “water song”.
