Empty Nest

<p>Empty Nest</p>
<p> </p>
<p>There is an empty nest</p>
<p>resting on the snow-covered branches</p>
<p>above our bathroom window.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>A grocery bag cushions collected debris,</p>
<p>holding it together like a hammock.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>If it’s quiet enough</p>
<p>and the wind blows just right,</p>
<p>I can hear the weathered plastic</p>
<p>rustling against the rugged tree.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I wonder about the family who lived there.</p>
<p>Where they’ve gone, why they left.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And whether it can hold itself together long enough</p>
<p>to house the next guest intending to leave,</p>
<p>or break the laws of time and stay.</p>
