5 Birds

One by one
they lay
on the ground
under their once cozy nest
Did they fall?
Was it the wind?
What happened here
to these little ones?
My heart sank.
Silently,
I wait to see life
there was none
unforgiving as only nature can be
I gently scooped them up
acknowledging their presence
within this world,
if even for a
moment.
