    I just love both Nature 1 Haiku and this poem. Mesmerising scenes, the combination of both poems hit my autumn moral of life and death, what a scenario. Heartbreaking indeed.

    However, you worded this perfectly, nature can indeed be cruel. I love how you managed to say it in a very poetic way, his chicks alas but a dream! Splendid and Sad.

    The visuals are really vivid in this piece and you have portrayed extremely well the cruelty of nature. I love the "Willy detail squall" it depicts so much. Milly x

    Sad to hear that Hellon. Nature has its own way of creating nurturing and destroying life. This poem reminded me of seeing the cctv footage. Hope nature did create life at my end.

    I'm so sorry to hear, Hellon :(
    But thank you for sharing this with us, and indeed... nature can be cruel. Sometimes we think intentionally when we just want that tiny seed of hope.

    In my daughter's back yard a pair of Blue Jays built nests each year with disastrous results. Some years the wind, some years just their faulty construction, but it was only after four or so years that they managed to learn how to build a sturdy nest that withstood all weather. Sometimes nature's lessons are harsh, but they must be learned.

    Such an elegantly written string of haiku and yet so sad.
    Nature can be so beautiful and breathtaking and then be devastating.

    Hellon brings this reality to the front, reminding us of beauty and
    sorrow all wrapped into one beautiful poem. Powerful!
