A to Z Challenge




For the A-Z challenge, we decided to post a new and original poem every day. Regina builds a nest for the letter "N".


Becoming a family


The bond that binds us
is the birds

as we turn our attention
to those nest builders

we collect our findings and
build one of our own.

  8. This time of year, I see so many birds collecting bits for their nests and it does warm my heart to think about their little families about to be born and about the new baby in our family too. New life and family--your poem captures it all.

  11. Lovely as usual! Love that the birds are using last year's remnants from the flower beds to weave into their nests.
