To Build A Nest

Blue Jay and A Branch

I’m sitting here watching a

Blue Jay hunt for branches

In order to built their nest

He picks random branches

Hoping it can be what they need

Some don’t give in

While others gladly accept

Yet sometimes the Blue Jay

Just leaves the picked branch

Not using it for their nest

And I wonder why?

Why does it allow it to fall,

Yet doesn’t take it for their home?

I wonder why, if the branch

Is willing to go

Why does the Blue Jay

Leave it to be broken?

Why am I that Blue Jay?

And why are you that branch?

Why can’t I use you?

And why did you have to fall?

Is it because you’re not what I’m looking for?

And at the same time

I don’t know what it is

That I am looking for

So I should be happy with

What I have…and that’s you

I need you in my home

I need your strength and support

I need your care

So why am I that Blue Jay

And you are that branch?
