Poetry Month: Rest, Oh Robin, Rest 21 of 30

It's here!  It's National Poetry Month!  I'll hoping to write a poem every day this month.  I've decided to keep it simple this year.  I'm going to write about whatever strikes me each day.  I suppose it will be like a rollercoaster ride of poetry.  You'll never be quite sure what you're in for from day to day.

Today's inspiration:  the crazy robin who has nested in a tree by our sidewalk

crashes into glass,
collides with windows,
thumps against mirrors.
Each morning
the fight begins
to protect
the nest.                                  
his only enemy...



  1. Oh, that is a surprise at the end. I've heard of smaller birds doing this, but never a robin. I like the arrangement!
