Someone left the cage door open and now...
by Sandy M. Humphrey
The nest is empty
Little broken bird
Has mended wing
So we sit on
As our birds
Still to be had
Flights of wiser
We watch the sky
To see if our
Will need more
Or if yes indeed
We have outgrown

There is a theory that kids once left home. Now we're forced to leave home to them. Fly like an eagle, Sandy!

Just as we are learning to value and conserve the air we breathe, the water we drink, the energy we use, we must learn to value and conserve our capacity for nurturing. Otherwise, in the name of human potential we will slowly but surely erode the source of our humanity. Excellent write, thank you.

Excellent expression on the topic Sandy. I too only had the one, and though it's nice for him to visit, I equally enjoy the flight of wiser wings to share our experiences and support one another.
