Flash 55 – Empty Nest

It seemed like only yesterday she encouraged them to spread their wings, followed their crooked flight nervously, then watched them soar with pride. Gone is the noisy chatter as they returned with tales of their adventures. She even misses the frenzied feedings. Next Spring they’ll be having children of their own. Time to move on.

This is my first Flash 55 post. I don’t even know if I followed the rules. Let’s ask MrKNowItAll.

Nicely done, Tracy.

Good job! And this is your first 55? One would never know.

I remember that "empty nest" emptiness well. The good news is that they sometimes fly back, bringing the brood with them (and sometimes the laundry). And then the noisy chatter continues, and the feeding is even more frenzied.

It's a good thing.

Loved it! As a mom whose last son will fly the nest soon, it resonated with me.
