The Circle





A nestling sways 
perched delicately on branch
trying hard to survive
the gusts of winter wind.

Barren Hickory heavy with snow
another blizzard approaches
with more white weight
already blanketing the earth.

Mama flies into distant lands
fluttering fitfully with breezes
searching in dismal futility
sustenance to survive.

Loud chirping clips the silence
and high above an eagle soars
he too empty belly seeks to fill
and chirping slips to silence.
