nest

we are constantly being reborn
giving birth to ourselves
building nests
cocoons
rejecting nests built for us and by us and those not yet created
constructed
tearing down
demolishing
nests cocoons webs
gestating
building waiting destroying hatching rising birthing
gathering
rebuilding
making things “just so”
or shirking those conventions
transforming
nests to strengthen our wings
nests to shelter and to hide
to nurture
to be born and be reborn
birthing ourselves
constantly becoming
subtly
or drastically
altered
it may be
why we can never clearly truthfully honestly
recall the past, what has passed
like a dream
we are reborn
from this moment
to this moment.
