Last year’s perch broken
Victim of its age and height
Barn owl soars over

Time shared between us
Was the beach amid life and loss
Where love controlled all

Sorrow now clasps emptiness
Pulling your touch from my soul

-Clarence Holm

Empty Nest

The Nest

I see you, now that the leaves are stripped
Resting on the middle branch
Exposed to wind, but holding steady
Empty as the flocks are gone.

A vacant home, now just a resting place
For winter’s backyard travelers.
Just sticks and twigs, stuck on a branch
No speckled orbs to guard.

It’s vacant now awaiting spring
When life will return to green.
Filled with down, soft and warm
Hidden once more to me.

-Clarence Holm
