Beautiful Chaos…

A wonderful haiku written by *Anmol aka HA from How Anxious for the November Tan Renga challenge. His words on the chaotic beauty of entangled branches took me back to spring when a Northern Mockingbird family moved into the tree next to the house.

It was temporary… the stick and fur-lined nest. First four turquoise speckled eggs appeared, then, in a couple of weeks, cracked shells. They looked like featherless, big beaked blobs. How else can one describe them? Eventually their feathers grew in and, of course, their appetites increased . I was sad to find the nest empty one day.

In Tan Renga style, HA’s haiku comes first followed by my two, seven-syllable line completion.

entangled branches
sun ascends through lifeless limbs
beautiful chaos*

now an intricate bird’s nest
cradling a voracious brood
