The Scrabble Wars continue. Your play, Charlie. You can use the last two lines. I tried to end it with something a little more usable, but this was the best. So, for the sake of the poem, you get "un-nesting." Sorry for the inconvenience. But not really.

you taught me to fly
  and never land

      (neither a burrower
       nor a lander be)

    but still,
I burrow
  into your warmth

  under that all-protective wing

    ear pressed into
    the downy heart of love




  I bathe in your song
  while I fear the un-nesting

I fear the un-nesting as much as I fear the unraveling...

You've got me stumped--I admit it. But check out Crystal's poem on my site--not bad either. Now I've got to try to incorporate her and your last lines--and I thought she was on my side!!! You guys are cleaver--very cleaver--you've hacked my heart to bitZ!!! It's okay. I mean, don't feel guilting or anything. I'll get over it...eventually....

he! such verbose, protracted imbroglio! but the chortles!

--and Leo brandishes his razor-edged poignard--his wit--and strikes yet again! Will this leave Charlie defeated and humbled? The anticipation is unbearable!

Oh, ho, using an innocnet animal to try to shake Charlie's compassion...oh, boy, can't wait for the response! This is brilliant, Leo, a move I wasn't expecting. If this was chess, I'd say "Check." LOL Well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
