A little light for your Solstice night—I hope.
 

BEAUTIFUL NEST

As I watched the bird
weave those ugly plastic shreds
through the delicate twigs and grass
of its cupping nest…

I realized how I could accept
the junk stuff of this culture

and still create something
of use and beauty…

of useful beauty…

something…
