Agreed Renee, this is certainly a beautiful piece of art.

I wanted to write a poem, but just the other day i had written a poem with those sad feelings imbibed, hence, thought of sharing it with you all..

My Crush Crushed with such Knack!!

James Parker said...


Oh joyful days of springtime,
What wonders do you bring.
The flowers bloom profusely,
And all the birdies sing.

It seems like only yesterday,
These tree-bound homes of sticks,
Were filled with frantic chirping,
Of the hungry baby chicks.

Now the summer sun is fading,
With the passing of the year,
You've grown your wings and left me,
And darker days draw near

The empty nests are silent now,
No chirping to be heard,
And so my heart is saddened,
I'll miss my baby birds.

The transitions in life are always difficult but even more so when they are wrought with problems and heart break.

Thank you so much for featuring my artwork. I am honored. It is wonderful to see it evoking responses similar to what I felt while creating it.

I agree with Renee, it is a great paintng. I love the colors and I also like the rather lonely look she has. Have a great weekend Nancy.

(poem by Therese L. Broderick of Albany, NY, USA)


A day comes when the high daughter
sides with her father, and he with her,
their nest no longer big enough
for the mother who first filled it with
songs and meals and lessons on
how to fly. They send her away, empty,
to some hollow syndrome
of their own making.

I'll let you in on a little bitty scoop:
My momma cried when I flew the coop.

But if my momma brings you into the loop
When I was gone she let out a "Whoop!"
