Proud blue jay
rebuilds
after spring storm
that has ravished his home.
Humbled again

by nature’s force,
he gathers small sticks,
pieces of scattered straw,
then flies to crook
between tallest trees
in my backyard.

Distraught mother
looks on in disbelief.
Their offspring gone,
killed by violent wind
she could not save them from.
Too many times
she has seen him turn
to productivity
frenetic activity
to provide safe shelter
sure to be blown away
by an unfriendly wind.

Her voice muted
temporarily
by grief, her heart
still sings,
grateful for
his steadfastness,
fidelity, stubborn
persistence
that seems futility
in light of
life’s dark storms.
