Young Man Birdwatching

Poem By Justin Reamer

Now he is young no more
with his binoculars in his hands
camouflaged in the vegetation
watching the birds
in the evening as the sun sets
watching them fly together
bring prey to fledglings
feed them and
eventually teach them to fly.

He hears them
feet and claws intertwined
singing the perfect love song that
a balladeer would write
creating a depth of meaning.

The man smiles
watching the fledglings
taking flight for the first time
before confined to a nest
as this young man had once
been as a child under parental care
now a full-grown man
ready to fend for himself
ready to survive on his own.
