The upside

of one of your little birds

 leaving the nest

 and flying off into the sunrise

is that they might be a homing pigeon at heart

and come back bearing flowers
as a cheerful reminder for you

when they go again.


  1. Sniff indeed. It's never easy, is it.

  2. I'd like to know those little birds that bring such cheery flowers.

  3. Oh thank-you for this hopeful thought. I'm preparing for my first bird to fly away to college and it is hard...nature is nature...he's already promised his little sister to be home for her birthday next October, though.
