Nests So Shallow

~Nests So Shallow~


The killdeer eggs were crushed, today.

Tires of a big, green, tractor ran them over.


Mom frets and peeps a few times,

then moves on.


There is no need for her to perform

the wounded wing act. The deed is done.


Dad comes home and finds the mess.

Checks out his tail feathers with his beak.

There's rain in the air.
