When cycling to work, there was a delicate broken eggshell on the path. Beside it a small shriveled nut-like form. It must have been an egg fallen from the nest. The young bird died before it was even born.

An empty shell
a shriveled form
lay on the path

It breaks my heart
to see a life
broken
before it had a chance
to start
