Poetry Friday

We have been having a wintery mix here today. I stood outside looking at icicles hanging from the tree limbs, and there almost hidden among the branches was a tiny nest, empty and silent. Although the trees looked beautiful, I couldn't help wishing for spring.

this empty gray nest
once home to the sparrows' song
silently sleeps
cradled in winter's branches
awaits the music of spring


  1. Linda,

    Happy New Year! Today (Wednesday) we're having rain, which is turning all the snow to slush. It's quite gray and mushy here.

    I like your poem inspired by the empty nest.

  2. Thanks, Elaine. We're having a wintry mix here again today. The trees are so pretty with all the ice covering them.

  3. So simple and beautiful. Thanks for sharing this.

  4. Wintery mix here too.Not yet the beautiful kind but hoping for some big soft flakes by this afternoon. You poem perfectly captures that wistful feeling..
