Osprey Family

ospreys

Osprey couple
Circled overhead
Called to each other
In reassuring tones

For days on end
Carried sticks
Pine boughs
Together constructed
Suitable nest

  In the male’s talons
A  wriggling catfish
Breakfast for hungry
Nested fledglings

 Mother and father
Held endless vigil
While one fed
And guarded
The other hunted
