Left Behind

sometimes i wish
for an empty nest ~
winged thoughts
would soar to the skies;
would leave me with nothing but
abandoned feathers & reminiscent twigs

sometimes i wish
for an empty nest ~
a new dawn;
and a breath of precious silence.

  4. Oh, this tickles me. I wish for this when I exhale and then when I inhale… I long for a newborn. M hormones must really be having a grand ol’ time. ๐Ÿ˜‰
