Fallen Nest Haiku


Fallen from a bough
The refuge of life and hope
Suspended in time

Credit for the above photo goes to my father-in law, Frank Stobbe. It was taken at a bird rescue center, and I've been given permission to use it as long as I don't wax eloquent.


Dad takes amazing and artistic photographs. I'm frequently gifted with photos of things that remind him of me...old doors, rust, lichen, trees, the curious and odd...

thanks dad!

Iridescent wings
Still shimmering with the sun
Fragile dragon rests
