calling the world home
my daughter unfurls her wings tomorrow, and flies - tentatively and temporarily - across the channel to norfolk, where she will alight in a pretty little village by the sea and start her "new" life.
i hope that the branch she settles upon will be supple and supportive, and that her nest will be warm, that the wide blue sky will give her room to reel and soar, and that her songs will be as sweet and joyous as spring-going-on-summer.
but i will miss her, even if it is for just a month.
