:: Nature's Creation ::
It has been a few years since I bought the four pots of bamboo.
Sitting in the balcony, the bamboo has matured into a green lushness.
And so, just the other day, we overheard a faint series of chirps.
Emerging from the foliage; there was a nest.
Over the subsequent period of two weeks
We would hear daily, the nearly inaudible chirps.
And soon, the nestlings were ready to fly.
I was happy to be part of this bird family.
Even though I did not do anything, but just watched.
I felt an innate joy at Nature's creation.
Unfortunately, a day later.
We discovered one of the nestlings
Drowned, the fragile carcass floating in the pond waters.
